[CES 2009] Miniwiz Solarbulb Bottle Lamp


By Evan Ackerman

The Miniwiz Solarbulb is a little accessory for people who may not have the luxury of owning a lamp. It charges up in the sun, and after 5-6 hours, it’s good for 3-4 nights (I think it’s nights, seems like it might be hours, there was a bit of a language barrier) of white LED light. Then you screw the Miniwiz onto the top a bottle (it’s got threads on the inside) and there you go, insta-lamp. It’s going to cost about $24, available in February.

The bottles in this picture, incidentally, are hexagonal and can be filled with stuff (or not) and used as bricks. They also pack, store, and ship much more efficiently since they interlock and there’s no wasted space. Brilliant idea, still looking for a manufacturer.
