Entry #44: Capture the Sun at Coachella

This is probably the best piece of the sun you can get without skin cancer in your bones. And it comes in your average jar, and titled the o-so-simple SUN JAR. I'm there, baby.

From the website:
Made with a traditional Mason jar and high tech energy efficient lighting! Captured inside the jar are a highly efficient solar cell, rechargeable battery and low energy LED lamps. When the jar is placed in sunlight the solar cell creates an electrical current that charges the battery over a few hours. This energy is then used at night to power the three LED lamps inside the jar. The light is diffused by the frosted jar and give the appearance of sunlight emitting from the (warm coloured LED lights are used to give a more natural and warm light).

You can capture the day at night at Suck UK.

I am on chapter 16 (five pages or less a chapter, it seems).
