Kerosene lamps are a source of many problems in third world countries and the Infinite Light hopes to step in as a safer alternative. Taking open flames out of homes made out of canvas, straw, wood and other flammable materials, the Infinite Light provides a helpful glow to work or live by once the sun sets.

Designed by Dr. Hakan G├╝rsu of Designnobis, a studio based in Ankara, Turkey, the Infinite Light is particularly helpful as it doesn't require electricity to work. Since many of these homes lack electricity, that is a huge must. Instead, the Infinite Light harnesses the energy of the sun through "a ready-to-use flexible solar panel and battery system that can be placed directly in discarded plastic bottles," according to Yanko Design.
