LuminAID: Shining a Light on Disasters
LuminAID’s patent-pending solar LED inflatable technology was designed by two architecture students, Andrea Sreshta and Anna Stork, shortly after the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti. When thinking about what they could design to make a difference, Andrea and Anna decided to focus on lighting because it had the potential to greatly improve the comfort, safety and survival of disaster victims. Inspired to design a simple, solar-powered lighting product that could be easily distributed in times of emergency, they developed their first solar inflatable light and founded LuminAID to bring the technology to market.
Andrea and Anna first developed their solar LED inflatable technology in 2010 and have filed domestic and international patent applications to cover a broad range of shapes, applications, and uses. LuminAID has multiple domestic and international utility patent applications on file.
In 2015, LuminAID announced the extension of this technology to a new product line: the Pack Line by LuminAID. The Pack Line features, lightweight, innovative lanterns that pack flat for easy storage and charging on the go. LuminAID’s PackLites come in a range of shapes and performance parameters.
