I'm infatuated with the simple design. From what I can tell, as you roll up the paper, it changes the printed circuit: shortcuts are made and more power is delivered to the bulb. A smaller circle pools that light into a smaller spot, while a bigger cylinder ensures gentler dispersion. At least on paper -- and in the delightful concept animations. We've reached out to all the companies involved to see if we can roll one up for ourselves. If LG can make a TV display that works, I'm sure a flashlight is doable. There's no price just yet, however. The Paper Torch will launch in search of crowdfunding affection in Japan mid-November.
