Gear that doesn’t require electrical plugs or batteries is crucial when you live in a place like Japan where typhoons, tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes and fire breathing gorilla-lizards are a constant threat to civil society. Say the power goes down, it’s pitch black outside and you need to traverse a debris-covered road in the pouring rain. Assuming you’re not MacGuyver or holding a glow-in-the-dark cat, what do you do?
Enter Mizupica Water-Powered Flashlight (￥1,058Prices are approximate only and subject to change.
White Rabbit Express service fee and other costs not included.). Compact enough to fit in any car, camping or household emergency kit, Mizupica illuminates with the synergistic power of water and sciency stuff. What’s more remarkable is that a mere tablespoon of water powers the flashlight for up to one week, and the water doesn’t even have to be clean. Dirty water, sea water, cola or juice; we encourage you to experiment.
