Isabel commented on Using lighting to generate power


Have you considered modifying the external source of electricity to fit the specific culture of different communities around the world? You give the example of refugee camps and lights, but would the technology still work if you could use, say, a refrigerator or other common household items to generate electricity? If the generator could be modified to fit the different lifestyles of individual consumers, the marketing possibilities (and therefore, impact) would be endless.
