Turn Bottles Into Lamps
Transform beautiful bottles (empty or full) into lamps with the Rechargeable Bottle Light. Works great outdoors, where the wind would blow out a candle. The stopper-shaped ultrabright white LED, made of cork and plastic, shines for three hours. Recharge the internal lithium polymer ion battery in one hour by plugging it into any USB port (such as a laptop computer). Twists on and off and has a charging indicator.
Bottle lights work best at room temperature. If it gets too hot or too cold, the light won't shine as brightly or for as long.
Are you curious...?
Prehistoric humans prized natural glass made in volcanoes (obsidian) for spear points. We started coating objects with glass of our own making as early as 5000 BC, and by 1500 BC we had figured out how to make hollow glass containers from sand molds. Glassblowing finally became a thing in the first century BC, but we didn't figure out how to eliminate impurities and make clear glass until the first century AD. Roman artisans guarded the secret of glassmaking and the skill didn't become widespread until the Empire fell. Although there were some innovations in technique and materials in the interim (such as lead crystal), glassmaking didn't become an industrial process until the end of the 19th century and glass containers weren't practical for disposable packaging until the 20th century. In the context of the full human career, glass bottles are a newfangled invention. Think about that the next time you put out the recycling.
