The Energy Bucket, designed by Stefano Merlo, glows by night when it's charged under the sun by day. Much like glow-in-the-dark stickers recharge under bright lights, the Bucket would recharge through the solar panels built into the top. This would be a fantastic method of lighting the walkway to your front door without using any electricity. Candles are unreliable and dangerous in windy conditions, so this is could be a cost-effective, eco-friendly alternative.
At present, the Energy Bucket is only in its concept stage, but Merlo is working hard to bring his design to the masses. The 21 year old Italian designer sees unlimited possibility for creativity, extended his passion into graphic and web design, print, and even fashion design.
