50 Watt light from Water

Recommended Posts

I just ran across something that I would like to share. You can create 50 Watt of light just by simply filling a soda bottle with 10ml of chlorine and water. THAT'S IT!!! Place it outside during the day to absorb sunlight, bring it in in the evening.

Somebody in Brazil figured this out and it is now widely in use. Granted, they install it in their roofs, but the principle is the same.

It is very clowdy and rainy up here right now, so I'm going to give this a try tomorrow to see how it does during winter conditions and will give a report.

I was really interested and looked it up and the article I read says that, when the soda bottles are mounted into the ceiling/roof, the bottle lights work by diffusing natural light. They really only work during the day when there's light outside. Apparently they're becoming more and more widespread in places like Manila in the Philippines, where houses are built so close togethere that daylight doesn't come through the windows.

 

Kudos to the mind that thought of it.

Hmm..it sounds like a liquid version of the old prism in the ceiling thing they used on certain sailing ships in the 1700s. They had a large piece of quartz or glass crystal cut into a prism, and then mounted in the deck above the captain's cabin (or other areas) so that sunlight would come down and light up the interior of the room, rather like central lighting.

 

I know about these from reading all the C.S. Forester novels and of course Patrick O'Brien (I love old sailing ships). You can buy these today from Edmund Scientific and such, and here is a link about them in a wiki.

    • Here is why I love Paul Joseph Watson Toxic masculinity versus mommy's boys ? So your a woman and have a child with a appendage we can't call it a wiener anymore, do you really want a 30 something man living in your basement and crying on your shoulder all the time ? Gillette has a commercial that is so offensive and ridiculous that any man who ever buys a product from them need to be castrated. I have shaved with a straight razor since I started growing whiskers and I don't use soap foam or gel just water, I don't see where I need to have as much or more room than my female cohabitant for beauty supplies ! And my other hero Jordan Peterson Here is another good video from Tomi
    • Animals are complicated and yes I can see where any animal could be a support animal, here is the kicker all animals are unpredictable and like people have good days and bad days. So let me just say I'll pass on meeting  wally, I may piss him off because I know I have eaten one of his family members and Wally may not like that. besides people have been attacked by their pets like mice rats gerbils cats and dogs much less anything with more teeth. Emotional support alligator                
    • Another fine mess,  Asteroids are smacking Earth twice as often as before, and that reminds me of Revelation 8:10- 12 -- 10 Then the third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star burning like a torch fell from heaven and landed on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter like wormwood oil, and many people died from the bitter waters. 12 Then the fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun and moon and stars were struck. A third of the stars were darkened, a third of the day. I'm not saying that this event is close but who knows what or how many are the precursors to this event, if it is like a woman in labor as the Biblical narrative describes it will increase exponentially until the end, that in the face of all the increases of fire, flood, famine,earthquakes and astrological events reminds me of Luke 21:26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. as recently as a few years ago a large asteroid passed between the earth and the moon or as they call it a near miss, and NASA or anyone else spotted it before it was right on top of us, so for all of you who think science and technology can save us until we build a solar sail or anchoring rockets to attach to space threats it just is going to be a bad day for some of us IMO.
    • Lmao Protests, a punch thrown and provocative jokes as Louis C.K. performs in San Jose. Louis C.K. became one of the biggest stories in the #metoo movement in 2017, after he was accused of sexual misconduct, and admitted to masturbating in front of female comics. After stepping away from the spotlight, he began performing again in New York last year, generating more controversy for his comedy, including a set in late December that appeared to mock survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting. The protest was organized by Enough is Enough Voter Project. Micheal Dauber, one of the protestors pointed out that San Jose Improv has acts booked through May, with no female headliners listed, “That speaks volumes,” Dauber said. Louis CK is not that funny to make a living off comedy he is just another jerk  IMO
    • The earthquake portion of the leading quotation of this post is working overtime. A micro earthquake struck early this morning in Malibu, where residents are already dealing with heavy rainfall and mudslides Thursday. A 2.8 earthquake was reported at 12:35 a.m. at a depth of just over one mile, with an epicenter just a few miles inland from Point Dume, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. For the second morning in a row, East Bay residents were jolted out of bed by an earthquake.  Wednesday morning's 3.4-magnitude quake hit at 4:42 a.m. Three small aftershocks followed: a 1.9-magnitude at 4:45 a.m., a 2.0 at 4:48 a.m., and a 1.1 at 8:52 a.m, centered near Piedmont and the Oakland hills along the Hayward Fault. The USGS pinpointed the epicenter near the intersection State Route 24 and Tunnel Road.
