    This ingenious and sustainable lighting project is the brainchild of Mr. Illac Diaz of MyShelter Foundation of the Philippines (www.isanglitrongliwanag.org). This person is such a gem to the Filipino community. He has also introduced low-cost technologies, alternative construction, and pioneered a number of life-changing and people-empowering endeavors. He is simply brilliant and we are so proud of him!

  • Michael D

    I they had these all over Ontario, Dalton McSquinty and his corrupt Liberals would find a way to lay a big TAX on it...

  • AcomaWestCollage

    A positive video and inspiring in what a bit of "out of the box" thinking can be created! The only thing I question is the bleach part. I realize it's to keep water from bacteria growth because of light and heat, but as an artist, I have similarly added a couple of tablespoons of bleach in water to a plastic spray bottle, for spritzing papers, and after a few months, it ate through the plastic. Perhaps, someone could think of a clear fluid or gel could be used that wouldn't. But it's a super idea for a dark room, work shed studio or porch. Can you imagine one of those huge water bottles?!

  • Yinyang

    We thought plastic bottles were polluting the environment but a brilliant mind changed it to a positive contribution!

  • Nile

    He made light from simple things we take for granted!

  • steve starr

    Question: Is the water in the bottle, or the combination of the bottle with the water, acting to funnel light into the room? Is this a function of a camera in a dark room making the light appear brighter than it really is, or is this device illustrating a principle of how light can be gathered and transferred? It sure seems like a hell of good idea, my hat is off to this man.

  • Diane

  • Amit

    Wow! Truly ingenious! Imagine if we had the top minds on the world focusing on simple, affordable solutions like this rather than on complex, expensive, over the top missile systems and technology that only applies to the top 10% of the world. This individual is truly inspiring and hopefully it inspires people from all walks of life to think outside the box, utilize the resources they have at and and then share it with the world!
