    Like the Block Lamp (http://www.thisnext.com/item/5FD32FBC/380A4F0B/Block-Lamp) but dread the extra energy consumption? Is every outlet in the house is used by a cell phone or ipod charger? Have you decided to live a zero emission life? The Glow Brick takes the same idea of encasing a light emmiting device in a clear case. This time, the material of choice is beautiful and totally transparent acrylic. The device captures light throughout the day and emits a gentle glow at night. No cord, no energy consumption, no guilty conscience and all the wonderful benefits of having great design in your home. Some folks have reported that the picture shown here is embellished a little and that you should expect light, but nothing near the power of the sun.

    This is a great mood lamp. It self charges with natural light during the day and lights at night... just enough to create mood lighting. It's not as fun as the animal shaped mood lamps, but it's a very nice, though sophisticated, design. I would have these in my home, for sure.

    Glow-in-the-dark light bulb trapped in a solid acrylic brick. Recharges from energy in natural light during the day. Glows at night. Made with a real light bulb!

    A light bulb trapped inside a solid acrylic brick that glows in the dark. It charges during the day from the sun and then, glows at night.

    The more unusual the better. This acrylic block has a glow in the dark light bulb inside. Great as a night light, a guide point in a semi dark room or hallway, or just for fun. I really like acrylic stuff. This would be great in a kids room, especially if you live in an area prone to power outages. As well as in a bathroom as a guide when you don't want to turn the light on at night.

    The highly unusual Glow Brick incorporates a real light bulb encased in a solid acrylic brick. However, unlike the bulbs original power guzzling properties, the Glow Brick recharges from energy in natural light during the day. This means no batteries are required, no mains electricity, there isn't even a switch!

    $29.99 A light bulb with a special glow! Yep - it's a glow-in-the-dark light bulb trapped inside a solid acrylic brick. The Glow Brick recharges from energy in natural sunlight during the day and glows at night. Not only that, it is actually made with a real light bulb! That's right. The glow-in-the-dark* pigment is trapped inside a real light bulb (just like the ones you have at home). Then the light bulb is encased in a solid block of Acrylic resin. The mysterious optical effect is caused by light diffracting in the tiny space between the glass of the light bulb and the resin - this space forms when the resin shrinks by a tiny amount during the production process. The polished surface gives a jewel like quality to the object. In a darkened room, or at night, the Glow Brick comes to life with a tranquil and subtle glow emanating from the pigment inside the light bulb. Size is 3.3" x 3.3" x 5" *The technical term for the glow-in-the-dark is "photoluminescence" this is a process in which energy absorbed by a substance is released
