Throwing away batteries is a serious crime against nature. At least that’s what some hippies told me once in a dream, when I drank too much cough syrup. So what are we expected to do with batteries if we can’t throw them out? That’s always been our conundrum. Well, the Energy Seed concept by Sungwoo Park is the answer.
You collect all the batteries that no longer power all of your gadgets and you deposit them in the base of this lamp. The lamp then glows, because even a “dead” battery will be able to power an ultra-efficient light source. What we need are battery recycling programs where people can drop their batteries, so that they can power certain lights used around any given city. Pretty cool.
