Denver (CNN) -- It started with such a simple concept: A solar light bulb that charges up during the day and lights the night when the sun sets.

Inventor Steve Katsaros perfected his design in June 2010, and four days later he had a patent in hand.

He knew it was a good product, but he didn't know what to do with it.

"It wasn't until after we created it that we asked ourselves, 'How do we market this,'" Katsaros says. "And we learned that the largest market was the developing world."

As Katsaros began researching markets in developing countries, he began to realize that his solar light bulb could potentially make a huge impact on the 1.4 billion people around the world who don't have access to an electrical grid.

I want to move off the grid, take a few thousand of these bulbs, and hang them in the trees around me. Then in autumn, when the leaves fall, I can live under an enchanted land of fairies and pixies.
Nothing I say is true, safe, or reasonable. Disregard any and all information I give, I have no idea what I am talking about.
