    The idea is to create a light which is able to gather enough light from ambient sources to power itself for up to eight hours.
    The light will use photoluminescent pigments to trap and harness the waste energy from the light sources around it, including CFL and LED bulbs. The lamp will have no cords or batteries, and will be 100% powered by leftover light energy. It will be able to harness enough light from an LED bulb in 30 minutes to glow softly for eight hours.
    The lamp's body will be created using Murano glass blowing techniques, which will allow the photoluminescent particles to be imbedded easily directly into the glass.
