This is a great simple idea to light a room that does not have windows. I'm not sure how many of you would use this, but there certainly seems to be a need in Manila.

:clap: That is such a cool Idea, I think I might put one in on the tin roof of my chicken house. I wonder if you put enough of them on the tin roof of a garden shed it could be used as a green house with out the need to reclad it in clear plastic sheeting. The shape of the bottles means they catch the light from all angles so it should work.

Just remember water has to flow around the bottles. I was thinking of a glass bottle as plastic over time may break down. Or coke will change the size so you can't slip in a new one.
