Sure there’s lots of dumb commercials for crap you wouldn’t need if you lived to be 100. And then there’s the Faraday Flashlight.
Wasn’t I just reading how most LA residents are ill equipped with regard to emergencies? Everyone agrees a flashlight is essential, and nothing is quite as maddening as a flashlight with dead batteries.
This flashlight doesn’t use them! Instead it uses Faraday’s Law of Induction, which I this case creates energy by moving a coil of wire into and out of a magnetic field.
Just the mention of this would be plenty cool, but – wait for it – the actual equation is featured in the commercial!
Show your support! Go and buy the thing at
faradayflashlight.com if you want, but apparently the light isn’t exactly blinding–
And no I don’t get a kickback.
