because people speak English
I read this interesting article in BBC news about "Moser Light" which was invented by Alfredo Moser, a Brazilian mechanic. Mr. Alfredo Moser uses plastic bottle with water and bleach to invent the most amazing light without the usage of any electricity. The Moser light is based on principle of refraction to light up a dark room during the day.
Mr. Moser had been using plastic bottles filled up with water and a splash of bleach, to avoid algae, to illuminate dark rooms since 2002 and now the idea had been spreading around the world especially to poorer countries. Mr. Moser had the idea to invent the solution during frequent blackout in Brazil in 2002. Depending on the strength of the sun, the light that filling his home is estimated between 40 to 60 watts.
He was quoted to BBC News "It's a divine light. God gave the sun to everyone, and light is for everyone. Whoever wants it saves money. You can't get an electric shock from it, and it doesn't cost a penny."
By the end of the year, it's expected that millions homes will be fitted with his invention. But, Mr. Moser did not get paid for his invention. He is still poor.
The question is, why did some Government or even big Companies did not use his idea, and maybe improvise it further, and fit most homes with the much needed light? Reading from the article, it seems this is one of the best and cheapest solutions for energy usage. I just hope no one will put some patent request and make millions from this simple idea.
It makes you wonder, doesn't it?
