The whole point is in the event of an unfortunate blackout, you can reach for the door, pull off its handle and activate the needed illumination. Such is the newest from a trio of Korean designers who set about reinventing the all too ubiquitous door handle/door knob.
More than just an instant flashlight, however, the LEDoor also works as emergency illumination if everything goes dark. When not helping in dire situations, it’s a low intensity mood light as well.
While checking out some of the pics available of the LEDoor, it occurred to us that it’s potentially a risk for infantilized adults. How come? Imagine grownups pulling one of these things then saying, “Hey I got a lightsaber!” There you go.
Of course, assuming the LEDoor becomes available in various homes it shouldn’t become an excuse for not packing a few flashlights. The best is to always keep one beside your reading lamp or somewhere within arm’s length. Make sure you change the batteries regularly as well. While a multiplicity of gadgets these days provide illumination, nothing beats a flashlight when demanding situations befall us.
Anyway as concepts go, there’s no word yet on when the LEDoor enters production or much less who’s going to manufacture it.
