Like some kind of tiny parabolic burning mirror that would make Archimedes proud, this solar lighter captures the sun's rays and focuses them to a central spot that can reach 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. Result: an economic, fossil-fuel-free way to light your smelly cigarettes. If that's not ironic enough, today is World Cancer Day! Let's just call it a "survival tool" instead, and say it's just an environmentally graceful way to, uh, start forest fires. [Shiny Shiny]
