The Glow Brick has to be the next best thing to remote-controlled lighting. In fact, we'll stick our neck out and say that it's even better, because you don't have to lift a finger to switch it on.
A strangely lovely phosphorescent green light bulb is entombed in a clear acrylic brick, which lounges about by day, quietly soaking up solar energy, then takes centre stage by night.
At dusk, the light starts glowing all green and mysterious, showing an awesome staying power throughout the darkest hours. The overall effect is of a disembodied shining light bulb suspended in mid air, which, you'd have to agree, is not something you see every day.
On a functional level, it makes a handy, low-maintenance security light. On a frivolous level, it's a jolly nice talking piece for people who like to talk in dark rooms.

Glow Brick Review
Does as described and is an interesting thing to have as a night light for those who have to have some kind of light on.
This is fantastic even when not in glowing mode it is made with perfect precision and is a beautiful ornament perhaps on a window ledge during the day to soak up the power needed to glow at night, remember you have to put the effort in to make it glow, if you just put in a dark place it will not glow it needs solar power to soak it up for evening glow, impressive and very well made,
As clear square blocks go this one is the nicest I have. It looks good during the day, which is great because I was slightly disappointed with its glowing power at night. From my experience this has to be in total darkness to really shine, as a decorative item i'm rarely in the room without a source of light such as the TV on. That said, as it looks pretty funky and gets plenty of comments anyway, the fact it glows somewhat in the near-dark is a bonus.
Doesn't glow as bright as picture, but maybe the lack of daylight at this time of year has something to do with it. Currently it gives off a mild spooky presence in the room.
Waiting to see
I can't tell you how it works yet as its a Christmas present but I can tell you how quick it arrived and in superb condition
This looks fab at night - a funky ornament (for intellectual students?!?), and also doubles up as a Halloween prop and handy wire + battery free night light, that's not so bright as to keep people awake. By day it provides inspiration on the desktop, whilst holding down lecture notes in it's role of paperweight (it's solid) - genius!
