Beer-Bottle Solar Shower

Street-Use points out a Chinese man's DIY solar water heater made with beer bottles filled with water installed on a rooftop.
"I invented this for my mother. I wanted her to shower comfortably," says Ma Yanjun, of Qiqiao village, Shaanxi province. Ma's invention features 66 beer bottles attached to a board. The bottles are connected to each other [with plastic tubing] so that water flows through them.Sunlight heats the water as is passes slowly through the bottles before flowing into the bathroom as hot water, reports China Economy Network. Ma says it provides enough hot water for all three members of his family to have a shower every day. And more than 10 families in the village have already followed suit and installed their own versions of Ma's invention.

amazing what our human brains can dream of, create when faced with need and everyday items lying about .....

that is if even 30% of us would ever stop to think, to ponder, to dream - in other words - utilize our brains ....

makes me wonder why i ever thought i needed a Walmart.....
