Taking a page from nature, Philips Simplicity has created a self-sustaining street lamp concept design. The sculptural Light Blossom uses an array of petals with energy efficient LED lights on the bottom and solar panels on top. The blossom also spins, acting as a windmill to further charge itself. The lights stay in a dimmed, low-power mode until someone walks by when they will brighten to full intensity to light your way.
