Evaluation

This is an excellent example of product development in which a long loved product that had not gone through any updates in years has modified its parts to adapt to the modern lifestyle. While keeping the appearance the same, it allows for a built-in high intensity LED lighting system just by switching out the pipes. USB charging is also possible, which is a great plus. The product achieves perfection by making the frame itself part of the wiring instead of running the exposed cords along the pipes. This lighting system which extensive time was spent on the development is sure to be cherished by many for a long period of time.
