A Nifty Idea: Solar Bottle Lamps: Water + Bleach = 10,000 Liters of Light
Who says you can’t bottle (and distribute) genius? Developed in Brazil to address under-illuminated slums, this simple design idea has been adopted by MIT students and expanded to other developing areas where many low-income homes lack access to either daylight or electricity.




The physics of the concept are straightforward: the bottles are placed in roofs – half outside, half inside – and their lower portions refract light like 60-Watt light bulb but without the need for a power source. A few drops of bleach serve to keep the water clear, clean and germ-free for years to come.

I've seen this before, but it's such a cheap and cool problem solver.

Neat to watch it again!

Wow! Bet you haven´t seen this one yet...yikes! Weapons for after TEOTWAWKI perhaps?

[link to dornob.com]

German photographer Marc Steinmetz has captured some of the more clever designs of select German prisoners from the last 100 years, which reflect technologies of the times as well as jail rules from generation to generation. The weapons pictured range from low-tech saws to remarkably complex working guns. The longer gun shown above was made to be triggered by an AA battery and broken light bulb. Between access to work and metal craft shops and simple in-cell ingenuity it is amazing what prisoners have managed to come up with. The next time you start a do-it-yourself project and think you need more tools – think twice.

I wondered what happened to McGiver...

Now does he have a nifty way to capture the water that leaks through the hole when it rains.

But in a DOOM scenario would we have access to great silicone sealant? I love that stuff, but maybe NO-GOTS when the SHTF. Add to prepping list. Lots and Lots!

More innovation out of need.....

Plastic bottles solve Nigeria's housing problem

[link to www.physorg.com]

"Sitting on 58-square metres (624-square feet), the two-bedroom bungalow looks like an ordinary home, but it differs in many ways. When completed, the house whose construction started in June will be used to train masons in building such structures.

It is made from capped, sand-filled plastic bottles, each weighing three kilogrammes, or nearly two pounds.

The bottles are stacked into layers and bonded together by mud and cement, with an intricate network of strings holding each bottle by its neck, providing extra support to the structure.
Bottle caps of various colours protrude from the cement-plastered walls, giving them a unique look. Those behind the project claim the sand-filled bottles are stronger than ordinary cinder blocks.

"The structure has the added advantage of being fire proof, bullet proof and earthquake resistant, with the interior maintaining a constant temperature of 18 degrees C (64 degrees F) which is good for tropical climate," Yahaya Ahmad, the project coordinator said."

use a clear alcohol. As long as it stays sealed, at 80 proof it should stay liquid in freezing temps just fine.

Well, the problem I see with this is that the roof will leak easily... if they made some sort of seal around the bottle, it would fix it!
