A little bit of soldering work along with a bit of joinery and you have yourself a home-made bedside lamp incorporated into a book
We have not covered many bedside lamp related gadgets in the past so maybe this will be the start of things to come.

Imagine a park where dog poop was encouraged? Better still – where they found it useful.
A park in Cambridge is using what is known as Park Spark to light its lamp. The way it works is simple.
The dog owner collects the dog’s poop and puts it into the park spark container. The poop is then converted into methane gas and used for energy purposes to light the park lamps.
This system lets dog owners enjoy the park as well as gives dog poop matter some concrete use, instead of being a pain to deal with. One can never tell, but who knows maybe one day everything will run on dog poop.
Have you ever thought that even jars can emit beautiful? Well, here are jars that can store solar energy and emit a beautiful glow of light in the dark. These are called Sun and Moon jars, they contain a highly efficient solar cell, a rechargeable battery and LED lamps that glow in the dark. The rechargeable battery used is standard AA size battery.
When a Sun and Moon Jar comes in direct contact of sunlight, the solar cell generates electric current which is used to charge the battery. The jars take a few hours to get fully charged. The energy stored in the battery can then be used to light the 3 LEDs during night time.
The light is diffused from the jars and it gives the feel of sunlight getting emitted from the sun or moon light getting emitted from the moon. What is more interesting to notice is that there are no visible controls. The jar is provided with sensors that automatically activate the LEDs during the night time. And a switch is provided inside to turn off the LEDs.
