But then I googled it just for fun, and it looks like I'm not the only crazy person around. I present to you, dear reader, the Candle-Powered LED Lantern:
|It looks like a tiny candle oven!|
"This innovative lantern emits a surprising amount of light, considering its power source. No power cord or batteries are required; it generates its own electricity by harnessing the heat energy of a single candle flame to run eight LEDs. It produces the equivalent light of about 18 tealight candles (70 lumens), more than enough to read by or illuminate a table top."
You can buy one of these babies at the Lee Valley website. Now that I've seen my idea realized, I kind of want one.
