      @Alessandra great question...There are some amazing creations out there like the solar powered light because it completely eliminates the need for a battery. The next steps for Revolights will do just that and actually harness the kinetic power of the light rings spinning with the wheels. It would be similar to a dynamo hub but since the light source is the actual moving object the power would be distributed directly to the LEDs and much more efficiently.

        Interesting. Makes more sense. Excited to see what comes of something like a solar powered light.
