The Um Torch Gives Off a Shower of Light to Better Illuminate Your Path

For those situations where you need significantly more light than the typical flashlight can deliver, the Um Torch would be ideal for the job. The innovative design is a complete reworking of the handheld lamp, both in operation and intensity.

When it's folded shut, the device is nice and portable, allowing it to be conveniently tucked into your backpack on camping trips. Hinge it open, however, and it extends to twice the length, featuring a series of brilliant LED lights along one half.

Nathan Kaw's pole-like design encourages you to hold the Um Torch like an umbrella, angling the beaming panel straight ahead of you or slightly down so that it can illuminate your path thoroughly. The gadget can also be switched on in its compact configuration to produce a dimmer light when that's all that's necessary.
