Eco-friendly Jump Rope with Flashlight

Designers at Yanko Design always come with cool eco-friendly concept designs. Like the Solar powered radio, now Yanko Design’s designers Hyun Joo Lee & Eu Tteum Lee have come up with the concept for a Kinetic Jump rope that saves energy and doubles as a flashlight. The coolest factor is that you don’t need any batteries to power the Jump Light, the Flashlight gets powered from the kinetic energy produced through your jumps.

Yanko Design states that, “With all the energy you expend while jumping rope, imagine using some to power a handy torchlight fitted within the skipping rope handles. Torchlight in any form is a good idea, but the cool quotient in this Jump Light comes from the fact that you won’t need any batteries to power the bulb. It simply runs by converting the kinetic energy from your jumps to electric energy. Now if that isn’t motivational enough for you to skip just a bit more!” This is a unique concept as it saves energy, is geared towards a healthy lifestyle and enables us to explore more ways of designing sustainable products.
