These Exhibitors have seen the light!


The Lightie by Michael Suttner is a solar-powered light bulb that can fit into a soda bottle to create a low-cost lantern. It provides between 5 and 30 hours of usable light.

Vijay Mitha’s Safe Township Lighting makes use of Nuru light, a portable LED light that glows for up to 30 hours at a time. Nuru light can be recharged in only 20 minutes when attached to a pedal-powered generator.
