For anyone who has ever dug in the dark, it can be really hard work especially when it isn't lit properly; the Light Shovel is here to the rescue. It is a typical digging tool with the main exception of an embedded LED light on its handle. Shining downwards in order to illuminate the patch of dirt the digger is working on, the Light Shovel offers a small tweak with big results.

The Light Shovel was designed by Shenfen Wang. A 2012 iF Design Talents entry, the Light Shovel utilizes the person's own hard work to power the light. It is also equipped with a battery pack in the event that the digger doesn't actually work all that hard. Stats for Illuminated Digging Tools Trending: Older & Chilly
