15yr Old Girl Invents Torch Powered By Body Heat!

Azhria Lilu

Ann Makosinski, a 15-year-old high school student from Victoria, British Columbia, has designed a flashlight that's powered entirely the heat produced from the palms of your hands!

She calls her design the "Hollow Flashlight" and it uses Peltier tiles to transform hand warmth into battery-free energy. The beam of light it produces can last up to 20 minutes. Ann was selected to show her flashlight at the Google Science Fair on the 21st September (the winner will be announced in a little over 6 hours at the time of this post).

Good luck Ann!!
