Introducing the GlowBrick. It’s a night light. Sorta.
A clear acrylic brick containing a real light bulb filled with that magical glow-in-the-dark substance. Remember those little stars you’d stick on your ceiling as a kid? Well it’s not like that at all.
You don’t actually have to hold this up to a light for 30 seconds only to watch it slowly fade 10 seconds later. It actually takes all day to absorb the light. You can achieve a similar affect when asking a man to take out the trash.
It takes some time.
I was skeptical about this brick thing at first, but this is the real deal. It recharges during the day, with the dense glow-in-the-dark matter it actually can sustain a nice bright glow all night long (about 7 hours). Depending on the brightness of the room, however. I kept it in a fairly dark room all day long and it still glowed at night. The room is kept dark because that’s how I roll.
And also by keeping a dark room I can avoid cleaning for months at a time.
Here’s a great shot of the bulb right after lights out. Really impressive. I’m banking on the sun being around for awhile, so with a night light like this, you can’t go wrong.
