I feel that light is important whether it’s after a disaster, even if you are relying on an unstable electricity grid.
不管是不是灾后,我认为光都十分重要,即使你是依靠于不太稳定的电力。
Because it helps people be more productive in their own daily lives and in the case of disasters, it helps them get back to normal.
因为有了光,人们的日常生活会非常有效率,如果发生了灾害,光也可以帮助人们恢复正常生活。
It was just after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and like everyone else, we were watching the stories about people who were struggling.We wanted to think about what we could design that would help.
2010年海地地震后,我和其他人一样密切关注着那里人们的情况,看着他们艰难求生,我们就想我们应该可以设计出来一些东西去帮助他们。
My name is Andrea Sreshta and this is Anna.And we are the inventors of inflatable solar light and co-founders of LuminAID, portable solar lighting for humanitarian aid and camping.
我是安德里亚·斯雷什塔,这是安娜,我们发明了充气式太阳能灯,我们也是LuminAID便携式太阳能照明灯的联合创始人,LuminAID是一款专为人道主义援助和野外用应急灯。
The way LuminAID technology works is there’s a solar panel that can be charged in the sun.They all pack flat and have adjustable handles and then the idea is you blow them up and the solar panel is connected to a rechargeable battery and LED lights.
LuminAID技术工作的原理是,它配有一个太阳能板,可以在阳光下充电。它们外观扁平,配有可调节手柄。你只需对着气嘴吹起,太阳能板就可以和充电电池和LED灯连接。
This is actually a version of our lights that also charges phones and all of our lights are waterproof and they float and everything weighs under 250 grams.
这实际上是我们设计灯的一个版本,它也可以用于给手机充电。我们设计的所有灯都是防水的,可以漂浮在水面上,并且所有灯的重量都不到250克。
There have been moments over the past five years where we’ve heard from different people who have used our lights or customers that made me realize what we were doing was even that much more impactful than I could have ever really imagined.
过去的五年里,我们不断从使用这种灯的人或者是我们的顾客那里得到反馈,这使我意识到,我们在做的事情比我想象的要具有更大的影响力。
I figured my whole life I’d probably be sitting in front of a computer regardless of what type of job I was doing.
我想,不管我做的是什么类型的工作,可能都要一辈子坐在电脑前。
But I didn’t realize that in addition to that I could ever be a part of something where I had created something that would be used in places that I may never go or situations that I may never understand.
但是我那时没有意识到,除此之外,我还可以成为某件事的一部分,我可以创造一些东西,将之应用于我可能永远也不会去的地方,或是应用于我永远也无法理解的情况之中。
And it made me feel like whatever I was doing at the time was scaling in a way that we wanted our business,our company and our products to have an impact.
这让我觉得,不论我此时在做什么,我们都在不断地拓展我们的道路,使我们的业务、我们的公司与产品能够产生更大的影响力。
We believe that light is really important. Being able to charge your phone, connect to loved ones, check in on news especially in post emergency situations.
我们认为光非常重要,它不仅能够给你的手机充电,让你能够与你爱的人联络,还能让你时刻查看新闻,在灾后情况下尤为重要。
It’s so crucial to be able to connect to just a wider network of communication.So we’re always trying to figure out ways to improve the technology for next time or make it so it charges faster.So that’s been very rewarding for us.
能够与更广泛的沟通网络相连非常重要,所以每一次我们都在想办法改进技术,或使之充电能更加迅速,这对我们来说非常有意义。
