Blinded by the (wind-up) light

21 October 2008

So there you are one evening, pondering the scarcity and cost of domestic energy tariffs, when it all goes dark. Like a dark bat. It's not the end of the world, it's just the sun setting on another day of civilisation going to hell in a handbasket. As the cost of switching on a plug socket approaches an economic event horizon, it may seem your only option is to fear the still, inky blackness and await the night terrors.

If only Yanko Design would fashion some sort of functional yet stylish wind-up lamp that provides up to an hour of bright light after a bloody good kranking, then we could be clean, green and not left in the dark. I wonder...

Not only do these KRANK lamps run on freebie electricity created by magnetic induction magic, they're manufactured from recyclable aluminum. Excellent. Order yours next Spring.
