School project: handtool



So then, what is this???
What has Uli designed?
Is it some useless shit?
Maybe.

It's a flashlight / night lamp made for children and nerdy design collectors.
It doesn't run on batteries but is charged up by hand. There is actually quit a lot of hand-chargeable flashlights on the market right now. And it makes sense. You don't have to charge it a very long time. I bought a really cheap one a while ago... it shone for over 3 hours after I charged it for like... 8 seconds.
So either you use it as a flashlight (for indoor use mostly) or you charge it up and leave by the bed as a nightlight.
Robert was a real sweetheart and helped me with making the 3D-models (bottom pictures). Top picture is of the model from the workshop. Body material is wood. Cone is from a indian tonic bottle.
I'm not completely satisfied with how it turned out, there are still a lot I'm not sure about concerning it's shape, color and material.
