Kulumi - International team from 5 continents releases product that gives Hope through Technology

The team at Hope Tech Global combined the latest advances in technology to create a unique product: KULUMI. It is the first of its kind and it will help create a brighter tomorrow for millions of people living in the Developing World.

BEIJING, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas has just finished and tech firms were able to show off their latest and greatest inventions. Faster, Higher Resolutions, Bigger... Better? What is the result of all this innovation?

Is the innovation creating a brighter tomorrow? Are the innovations putting us on the right path? Will consumerism continue to fuel society or are we on the verge of post-consumerist society? Do we need bigger, faster or do we need to get back to what it means to truly live?

One company, Hope Tech Global, has taken on the challenge to innovate with meaning. Their goal is not to serve the high end markets. No - their goal is to create technology that can make a difference for those who need it most, for those who have the least access to technology and for those who realize that the current consumer trends are not a sustainable end game.

The team at Hope Tech Global is small but diverse. The members represent 6 countries from 5 continents and their mission is to bring Hope through Technology on a Global scale. They have just launched their first product, Kulumi. Kulumi combines a powerful LED light with an audio player to enable a portable device that can be used in a wide range of settings. It is unique, it is beautiful and it was created with a passion for impact.

Kulumi gives you light when the power is gone. Imagine what it feels like to have no electricity. It means that you lose lighting and the ability to communicate, to just name a few. What happens when your grid goes down? What happens when your government fails to provide power? 1.7 billion people know what it feels like to live with unstable power or none at all.

Kulumi also has an audio player. Do you know how many oral learners there are in the world? They amount up to almost 4.3 billion. Chances are high that you are one of them. Do you know how many people can still not read or write? There are almost 1 billion, and audio education is a way for them to also get one step ahead in this world.

Kulumi, a small device with massive potential. Providing extended productivity in the dark, backup power and light, the ability to charge a phone, audio education, entertainment, a speaker phone and music amplification. A gift that was designed to be shared. It all adds up to hope, empowerment and technology that matter for those who need it most.
