Very good alternative since electricity is expensive in the Philippines.
You just have to love it! What a great & simple solution.
Hmmm. This is a variant on deadlights used to provide lighting on wooden ships in the 16th-19th century. The only difference is that a deadlight was made of a solid chunk of glass, while these use water-filled bottles.
And, if you leave the grape soda in the bottle, it’ll make all your hard rock posters glow!
That is absolutely amazing!! I hope the word catches on in other regions of the world that struggle with a lack of electricity.
Certainly engenius, but my God the poverty. When people start comparing the “poverty” level in the US and other western countries with parts of the third world, you know how hollow it is. Let’s strive to lift the standard of living of everyone, and not worry about the so called global warming. Electricity should be made cheaper, not more expensive. The people who will be squeezed from environmental extemism are these very people.
This is absolutely amazing. I hope this spreads like wildfire to areas that are in similar situations with lighting.
Manny, great point. It is kind of laughable to see what is called poverty in the USA. in this video, there are not 450 pounders with their finger nails all professionally done coming out of a resturant talking or texting on their smart phones while walking to their air conditioned car to drive to their air conditioned home with microwaves and multiple TV all the while complaining about the rich.
Being poor in this country still provides you with a life that would be considered middle class in most countries around the world.
The other issue of course that this company would have several lawsuits because someone got hurt filling the bottle or because it leaked hot water and burned someone and the federal regulations would cause the product to have to triple in price.
but it is a good idea for thier needs. Gotta burn off the water pretty fast. Wonder how often it has to be filled?
