Things tend to come pretty easy to kids these days. On demand television, with-you-anywhere music, and questions answered instantly thanks to the web are little luxuries that my generation certainly didn’t have. The LJUSA Hand-Powered Flashlight from IKEA doesn’t make it so easy. While it’s unique, cute, and perfectly sized to fit a child’s hand, it requires no batteries and only works when the handle is wound up…by hand. The light powered by a capacitor, which stores an electrical charge. The designer wanted to inspire children to think about where energy comes from – and teach them how important it is we save it.
