Use a Glass Bottle to Make a Solar Charger

September 3rd, 2012 by  


This project illustrated above uses the mini solar cell devices by Shawn Frayne and Alex Hornstein as well as their solar-on-the-back-of-a-card trick. Now, you’re also adding in a glass bottle.

If you’re up for the challenge/fun, this Instructables post tells you everything you need to know to produce it.

Here are some pics to whet your appetite.
