Image Number 5 for United States Patent #7771076.
A light emitting device includes a housing having a substantially elliptical perimeter and an elongated aperture for accepting the digits of a user's hand. A first light emitting source is positioned in the housing for projecting a beam of light into a distance in front of the user. A second light emitting source is positioned in the housing for projecting a beam of light toward a surface proximate the user's feet. The housing includes a handle between the aperture and the substantially elliptical perimeter for gripping the light emitting device and wherein the elliptical perimeter distributes a weight of the light emitting device substantially evenly across the user's grip to prevent the user's grip from becoming fatigued.
