Liter of Light- Human centered design resulting in social innovation

Individual Creativity

This is an inspiring video of a design innovation that is helping people in the developing world to have more illumination in their homes through the  bending of light via water bottles. Great example of a clean and simple design that results in a real social innovation that is benefitting peoples lives.

This story makes me appreciate the creative people that can cut through complexity and make something both useful and simple.  This is true human centered design.

Also a great quote from the designer in the video, “The purest form of charity is to make yourself obsolete”
