Bottle Lamp!


In 2002, Brazilian mechanic Alfredo Moser invented a new type of lamp that uses absolutely no electric whatsoever! The Moser-lamp is created using a plastic bottle filled with water and the smallest bit of bleach (to stop the bottle turning green with algae), and works through the refraction of natural light – kicking out roughly 40 – 60 watts per lamp! They are becoming popular in many countries where electricity is an expensive commodity, and have been fitted in over 140,000 homes in the Philippines. Despite the success of his invention, Alfredo Moser has not become rich from it, but has instead a great sense of pride at his altruism.
