Maxablaster-Portable STAR LIGHT.
There are places in this world where simply turning the light switch on doesn’t illuminate a single room, but then they don’t have power there. What if you’re left in the dark someday? Energy has become into a precious resource now-a-days, being stranded without power is manageable but without a torch is criminal. However if your thinking of using this next product as an emergency light its wise to point it far from your plasma screens, mobile phones & other gadgets; reason being they would most definitely get toasted. The 45-year-old Dutch optics engineer Ralf Ottow has been building his own lights since he was eight, Powered by a pack of 54 batteries, the Maxablaster can put a bright spot of light on a cloud four miles high and illuminate a house from just as far. But Ottow doesn’t use it to spook his neighbors.
I see a great use of this compact light to help navigate aliens land in your back yard.
