This is pretty cool, saw it on YouTube today... Touch Lumen by Rost and the heat of your body will be converted to light!

Essentially it's an everlasting light source that is always with you. :)

From their Kickstarter Page, to quote: WHAT IS LUMEN?

It is an ordinary flashlight with brightness comparable to your smartphone's except his main feature - it doesn't need batteries and virtually eternal.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

af6505c97807358d3bb007c8164566e5_original.jpg Lumen has relatively simple work principle - you touch TEG (Thermoelectric Generator) - small ceramic bar that can produce electric current when we provide temperature difference between upper and lower parts of TEG.
