Cordless Lamp Powered By Its Own Moving Parts & Gravity

Cordless Lamp Powered By Its Own Moving Parts & Gravity

Sophisticated reading light generates electricity using a mechanism similar to that in a grandfather clock.

Post Fossil has created the ‘First Light,’ a cordless reading lamp that doesn’t require electricity or solar energy to have it working. Instead, the standing lamp uses weight-driven mechanisms to generate power, similar to what is found in grandfather clocks. The lamp relies on gravity to turn a set of cogs and gears in order to work.

The ‘First Light’ is sophisticated and transparent in its design so users can see directly how the concept works. Limited quantities of the lamp are produced, and price is available upon request.
