Eco-friendly wind up lamp looks cool, saves energy

This cool lamp has a giant wind up knob on its back. I think it looks pretty cool, and the fact that the handle not only winds up the spring inside, but acts as a timer, I think that's great.

It will also be one of the few lamps that get its power from you, the winder. I don't know what the deal is with Earth friendly lighting solutions, but this is the third this week, first it was the 8 watt 400 lumen LED, then it was the Firewinder yesterday, and now a wind up lamp.

It's just a design, but it's still cool, and with its high carbon tensile steel spring and dynamo electric generator, it sounds like it could last for a while too. Just imagine if you put one of those 8 watt LED bulbs in this thing, it would last forever!
