Brandon Man, Gabriel Traietti, Jessica Feng, Sebastian Armstrong, and Tony Ren presented a human-powered light using weight attached to a generator. The user: someone in a developing country with little or no access to the electrical grid.

Their first working prototype was constructed with Lego parts. But with an eye towards using the light in a resource-poor country, the team settled on bicycle parts, readily available in developing countries. The final project was constructed with a rusted bicycle frame and chains donated by Cambridge Bicycle.
