/ Special Purpose Lighting
Solarpill is designed to be used for visual communication(by flashing) and direct lighting, especially during the emergency situations. Developed for campers, climbers, cavers, search and rescue teams; for whom working in nature.
If you need to visually indicate your location in nature, you can leave a trace of where you are by pinning (or leaving/hanging) the modules on the proper surfaces; such as trees, soft rocks etc.
The modules can charge themselves by using solar energy. Flashing (SOS) function becomes active only when the environment is dark; so it can work in 24-48-72 hours cycles.
