Better Than Fireflies in a Bottle

I remember camping trips where we would carry an extra jar, just to catch fireflies and make glow-in-the-dark lamps. The Bottle Lantern looks something like that. It’s a standard wide-mouth water bottle with four bright LEDs in the lid that are powered by placing your finger in the carrying hook and turning. Thirty seconds of spinning equates to about four minutes of light.

    Please forgive me to ask your some questions. What software do you use to create the comic in the description in your works.

    Less pretty, but a solar powered version exists today. http://www.sollight.com/products/lightcap.cfm.

    And it provides "several hours of light each night." without getting chafed fingers (30 seconds of spinning for 4 minutes of light)

    Cheers,
    Mike

    The storyboard was hand-drawn and scanned in. Color was added using Photoshop.
