    G’day H…. Thanks for steering me here. As well as working as a Skylight, the Water will emerge Sterile. A PET Bottle of Dirty Water, capped, & left on the Roof for 3 days ; sterilises the Water via Ultraviolet Light, & any Dirt settles out. Pour off the clean water, or syphon it out, leaving the Sediment behind. It doesn’t deal with Toxins, just Viruses & Bacteria. Thanks again. Ciao !

  13. Well, the problem is the way this is advertised. The title of this video sez “Use a 2-liter bottle as a 50-watt light bulb”. Well, a light bulb PRODUCES light — this doesn’t. A light bulb works at night — this doesn’t.

  14. I guess MIT is turning out MORON’s now… Hell, we, in the southern midwest, knew this and used them 60 years ago!!

  19. If you cut a hole through the roof it only shoots a beam of light down into it.

    If you put this it shines evertywhere

  20. What the fuck. At first I thought they’d come up with a way to produce light through some chemical reaction within the bottle but they just poked damn holes in the roof to illuminate the interior. Dumbest fucking thing ever.

  24. If you actually took the time to pay attention to the clip, you would know that they install them in a way so they DON’T leak.

  25. This is great for populations that live in sheet metal sheds, without anything overhead like an attic or insulation. What about those situations?

    By pwallen1962wtf on Apr 3, 2013

  26. true. To have light at night, one could make solar lights with ball jars and outdoor driveway lights. I have some and they work great!
