Drive Wire: The Lumir-C Uses the Power of Tea Candles

Today’s gear features the Lumir-C, an LED lantern powered by a tea candle. Yes, that’s correct – the Lumir-C uses one of those little votives you buy in bags at Ikea, takes the heat, and turns it into sixty lumen’s worth of electrical energy. The gadgetyness of it alone is pretty cool, and you can go from romantic to effective and back in just a couple seconds, so it’s great for today’s mixed-use lifestyles. Get it on Kickstarter.
