High school sophomore Ann Mokosinki from British Columbia, has invented a thermoelectric flashlight. The Hollow flashlight shines with touch using the Pelier Effect, a reaction that occurs when one side of the device is heated and the other side is cooled. Body heat has the ability to generate light for up to 20 minutes at a time. This can help students in developing countries to be able to study in the dark
