Nicrosin from the MAKE pool writes – “Found this weird travel light in a thrift store yesterday for $2. It had an odd looking bulb that was burnt out, plus I wasn’t about to shell out $5 for the missing battery (it uses one of those square lantern ones). So I converted the bulb into two LEDs and hooked up a 9v battery. The extra space can be used for storage or whatever. “ [via] – Link.
