Look what the Philippines invented!

salt water lamps

Some areas of underdeveloped and developing countries still do not have access to electricity. Lighting up homes is not only cumbersome but also hazardous to health. People have to travel long distances to collect dry sticks and buy kerosene to burn lamps.

As a solution to this painful problem which the poor face, Mejino, an engineer, innovated this absolutely brilliant lamp which can run for 8 hours, with salt and water! Yes, all you need is one glass of water and two tablespoons of salt. And if you happen to live by the ocean, voila! you just use the ocean water!

We do hope this impressive innovation in alternate energy brings respite to people for whom access to electricity is luxury.
