How To Turn A Beer Bottle Into A Glass

By MH Staff - Posted on 25th August 2011 Warning: this stunt involves sharp edges, breaking glass and fire. But if you’re careful, it could also involve fun. Pick a brand with a sturdy but attractive bottle. (Try Grolsch or Darling Brew’s dumpie-style bottle. Corona’s also good, because the bottle is especially thick.) Tie a string tightly around the empty bottle just above the label. Put the string back on the bottle and light it. Pour cold water on the string. Sandpaper the edges until smooth.

Update: If you’re trying this out on a Mac, please make sure you get Audacity 1.3 Beta or newer – the stable 1.2 version appears to have a missing equaliser decibal-range slider which you need towards the end of the process! 1.)

TetraBox Light by Ed Chew Liquid to Light Designer Ed Chew takes a green step in the right direction with the TetraBox lamp, a light object made from discarded drink packets that would have otherwise ended up in landfills already packed to the brim. The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. Here, the Epcot-like ball makes an attractive overhead light and casts an impressive web of shadows and shapes on the surrounding space.
