Starrynight is a combination light and nightlight that recreates the starry night sky while being energy efficient. A transparent light-collecting module (provided by Mechanical and Systems Research Laboratories [MSL]/Industrial Technology Research Institute [ITRI]) serves as an exterior lampshade. There’s a photovoltaic layer that charges a battery to power the night light function which is when the “stars light up.” Beautiful idea. Do want!
Starrynight Lamp is a 2010 Red Dot Concept Award Winning Entry.
