Carry the Sun for When There Isn’t Any
SULI uses 3D printable accessories to bring light where it is most needed
Imagine gathering sunlight in a bottle and saving it until you really need it, to light your home, your path, your bike. A new device called SULI makes this into reality, combining solar technology with 3D printing to save light energy for later use in a multitude of ways.
SULI is a portable light source that charges when exposed to the sun. With a push of a button, SULI’s lamp can be lit for up to 50 hours of continuous illumination for every eight-hour charge. Using solar energy to create electricity is hardly a new idea, of course, but the idea behind SULI comes from the flexibility of the device. In the hand, it’s a flashlight.
