Default Project: Living Intelligently

I made this 'space heater' today that uses 9 ~3 cent tealights that will heat for hours, nearly through an entire night. I lit them less than 30 minutes ago and the bolt head holding all of the pots together is untouchably hot and the outer pot is radiating heat. A very good way to supplement some extra heat for a room instead of cranking up the furnace. 2014 is the year to start getting smarter, much more to come...

It's absolutely amazing when you sit back and look at how wasteful 98%+ of people live in America these days are, if they want it warmer in their house they crank up the furnace, if they want their car to be warm inside when they get in they'll get a remote start and run it 30+ minutes beforehand...

We're locked into a sense that fossil fuels are the only way to go and that anything else is just for 'tree-huggers' and idiots...but, in reality, every single household could be self-sufficient or at least come up with MOST of it's power requirements on it's own through solar, wind, hydro (lots of energy in falling rain in down-spouts of gutters, just a thought), and human power...yes, human power *gasp*.

I plan on going further this year by building a stand for my Royce Union 10-speed road bike and running an alternator (that's connected to a battery bank, which is also connected to a small solar panel) with it which should power all small electronics in my house including the 32" LCD screen that I use as a monitor, my computer, alarm clock, 5.1 surround sound, etc. MUCH more to come on that...

Everyone needs to wake up and realize how much energy is in the world in almost everything that we do. Like using the motion of walking to charge our cell-phones, the energy of noise to vibrate collection panels in subways, rain down-spouts on gutters to spin small pinwheels, the energy of the sun collected on our rooftops with solar panels and also used to heat our water instead of using gas, having solar panels on the roofs of electric cars so that they charge while you're at work and have collection devices elsewhere in the vehicle that collect energy from the brakes, turning parts, hinges of the doors moving, etc etc.

There's almost no excuse for how much we pay yearly to heat our homes and get to work/around town (gas)...Big oil companies have us by the balls and this year I plan on reducing their income from this guy. I have also converted my house to 2/3 or so LED-lighting, soon to be 100%. It's time to live smarter...







And this is another one that I have in the living room using 4 of the tall candles that you can get @ the Dollar Tree. It doesnt heat up as fast or get as hot (as the 9-tea candles version) but will go a lot longer with how tall those candles are.





The 9-tealight version has been burning here in my room for a little over an hour now and I'd give someone 20 bucks to hold their hand on the outer pot for more than 2 seconds...it's hot.

BTW, I would NOT suggest using this pot-style heater with just one candle...it simply would not heat up quickly and wouldn't give off a lot of heat after that...the 9 tea-candle setup is doing very well, highly suggested.

No 45's on your boxes. They don't do anything but waste trees and cause the box to be bigger.
