Teenage Girl Invents Flashlight (Torch) That Doesn't Need Batteries

Post by Lurker on Wed Feb 26, 2014 11:42 am

Think about that for a moment: a flashlight that shines for as long as you hold onto it. No more scrambling for and chucking away AA batteries. It could have an immediate impact on more than 1.2 billion people -- one-fifth of the world’s population -- who, according to the World Bank, lack regular access to electricity.

Stunningly, no one on record has thought to use thermoelectric technology to power a flashlight. But for Ann, peltier tiles, which produce an electrical current when opposite sides are heated and cooled at the same time, were a convenient solution to a friend’s study problem.

It's amazing what seemingly small things can do to improve children's educational opportunities. I saw on a show last night that elementary school kids improved their math scores 17 percent when their schools started providing them with breakfast.

I really am so in awe of people who invent things.
I sometimes think of stuff but it's truly rubbish.

Well done to her. Hope she makes a fortune.
