Efrain E. Velez’s KRANK


No, we’re not all going to be experimenting with illegal amphetamines in this post, we’re talking about Efrain E. Velez’s crank-powered lamp.  Krank, if you notice from the images, looks a heck of a lot like the old crank drills that my father has.  On a few cranks of the Krank crank crankable handle, you can power your Krank light for 40-60 minutes.  It’s also made form all recyclable aluminum parts.  This is truly a “green” fixture.  Krank.  Crank the Krank.

Ok, that’s enough of that.  It appears that we’ll be seeing these for sale in Spring of 2009.
