Xiaomi has launched a unique multi-function device in China that can be used as a flashlight, a lamp as well as a power bank. This compact device has a 2,600mAh lithium-ion battery which can be used for multiple purposes. Called the ‘Natuo Multifunction Induction Flashlight’ (via Google Translate), it is listed on the Xiaomi Youpin website where it is available for CNY 119 (roughly Rs. 1,200). The 3-in-1 device is assisted by a dual photo sensor that helps in judging ambient light in its surroundings while being used as a lamp. It also has a sensor that can detect human presence in its vicinity. It enables the lamp to glow when someone is nearby and turn-off when there is no one there. The sensor has 120-degrees field of view which can detect human presence from as far as 3 metres.
