One thing that camping enthusiasts never forget to take is a flashlight along with additional ambient sources of illumination. Industrial designers Kyeore Kim, Jaesuk Han, Sungkuk Hong and Sena Joo are trying to reduce the weight of their backpacks with the FLEXI concept.
The all-in-one lighting solution for outdoor activity is a flexible flashlight that can be used for both directional light and ambient illumination for convenient cooking and other activities of the campers.. When direction light is needed, the flexible sheet can be rolled in the form of a flashlight and when only ambient light is needed, the FLEXI can be used like an open sheet.
The concept is made of thin rectangular silicon pad which is fitted with powerful but energy-efficient LED lights along its one edge. The users can roll the pad into different shapes for different types of lighting needs. [via Tuvie]
