A portable, convenient light source that remains stylish.
As someone who works a lot of late nights, I often encounter situations where using bright overhead lighting is less than ideal. For example, when I get back to my room, my room-mate is often already asleep, and a small light would be very helpful in getting to my bed.
The ideal solution would easily provide just enough light when needed, but be unobtrusive enough that I can keep it with me all the time.
Why this gap meets the assignment criteria:
- I have personally experienced this gap, and regularly need some small light to help me find things late at night.
- I have access to at least 5 people with the same issue. Maybe you also have the same issue. Can you think of a time you really could have used a small light?
- This challenge will likely involve some basic sewing and electrical work, so this is something that can be addressed within 8 weeks.
- I have built prototypes for wearable technology before, so this is within my abilities.
