Retired Air Force officer transforms busted LED television into street light during lockdown


A retired Air Force officer transformed a busted LED television into a street light.

Technical Sergeant Salvador Buenaobra Jr, 55, used his time during lockdown to tinker with his broken down TV in Cavite province, the Philippines.

One February 7, he was able to complete the project and successfully lit up the street in front of their house using the scrap appliance.

Salvador said: ‘I want to share my simple knowledge of electronics in my neighbourhood. I want to provide light on our streets to make it safer for everyone.’

Salvador said he learned his DIY skills while working with the Philippine Air Force.
