Rhode Island Patent of the Month – September 2022

Whether you’re searching for a missing item in a dark closet or lost power and need a source of light, flashlights are an essential component to life when it comes to illuminating dark areas. Moreso, military and law enforcement personnel rely on flashlights to see objects in dimly-lit areas in emergency situations. Typically, flashlights provide a single source of light. However, many situations require multiple types of light, such as white light for general use, infrared light for night vision equipment, or even different coloured lights to illuminate different types of terrain.

Emissive Energy Corp is a company that utilizes advanced technologies to provide customers with a variety of products from outdoor hardware to mobile phone mounts. They specialize in developing products that make our lives easier and more convenient.

Their latest invention involves a cylindrical device that has two sources of light mounted on a circuit board, each presenting different wavelengths of light. The dual illumination feature allows military and law enforcement personnel to switch between light sources by rotating the head of the flashlight. This assembly can be implemented in any type of illumination device regardless of shape or configuration, making this patented technology easily adaptable in multiple applications.
