Tenth grader creates body heat powered flashlight

Gadgets powered with hand-cranked motion are in the heat these days but to come across a flashlight

that is functional by the heat of your hand is simply amazing. Created by Ann Makosinski, a 15-year old

tenth grade student girl from Victoria who managed to make her way through the pool of thousands of

bright kids from more than 100 countries into the 15 finalist grid of Google Science Fair speaks volumes

for this project. Ann’s Hollow Thermoelectric Flashlight is completely powered by heat of human hand

andhas been ergonomically designed to work on five degrees of temperature difference to produce 5.4

mW for 5 foot candles of brightness. Apparently the winner of Google Science Fair will win a scholarship

of $50,000 and a trip to the Galapagos Islands~
