Free Electricity : Possible? May be "yes" - The Power of Pure Water.

Yes, it should be, certainly in this case. An idea that lit light for some of the millions of people who live without electricity. A one-plastic bottle filled with purified water and some bleach was all it required - an idea originally developed by MIT students is now being employed through out Philippines. However, in order to make the bottles light up it required to dig a hole over the roof top of the ceiling as shown in the figure.

The basic idea of this activity is to use this alternate source to brighten homes of poor at least during day time.

How it will work:

Take a water bottle, with water along with some bleach. Now the holes are cut over the ceiling and the bottle is placed so that its lower half emerges from that hole of the ceiling. Now when Sunlight falls - the clear water disperses the light in all directions through refraction, which can provide a luminosity that is equal to 55 watt electric bulb with an efficiency of 5 years.

This is great. Good thinking from those guys at MIT. I admire the simplicity in geniusness.

This project is called as Isang Litrong Liwanag (A Liter of Light). It is a sustainable lighting project which aims to bring the eco-friendly Solar Bottle Bulb to disprivileged communities nationwide.

The following video became quite popular last year mainly due to its shares on social media sites -

In next few years I think we need such bulbs everywhere. Don't know whether this bulb provides such intensity when it places at some angle not on roof.
Very nice information 😀
