Dasung Ming Light
There is no tech magic at work here as basically what the holder does is emit light which illuminates the transparent panel so that the same, when held against the page of a book, will make it visible even at night. This way, Dasung is claiming the Ming can be the perfect replacement for the traditional night lamps that we have had so far.
With this being the device's basic working principle, other tech bits are built in to ensure a supremely comfortable reading experience. For instance, ultra-clear tempered glass with high permeability has been used for enhanced transparency. The panel also boasts of an oleophobic layer as well as an ‘Optical Clear Adhesive (OCA) substrate-free optically transparent special double-sided adhesive lamination’ all aimed at achieving the highest levels of transparency possible.
Further, there is the 0.4 mm ultra-thin high precision microlens structure light guide plate that has been used, which ensures uniform dispersion of light even for the portion farthest from the light source. Dasung said it had been derived from the front light technology used in its e-reader devices and comprised ten flicker-free led lights that provide 4000k colour temp uniform natural warm white light.
The Ming night reading light features include a thin, portable build and adjustable brightness. The energy-saving chip onboard allows for long working hours – 8 hours – on a single charge of the 700 mAh battery. There is also the Type-C charging interface for quick energy refills. The device otherwise comes with a minimalist design. It is lightweight and hence easy to use. Further, the handle has a soft rubber wrapping all over, making it easy to hold.
