To all of you convinced there’s no such thing as a perpetual motion machine, behold Benjamin Shine’s brilliant Rekindle candlestick holder that slowly but steadily turns into a brand new candle as it burns and melts away.
Actually, ‘perpetual motion’ might not be the best description for Shine’s creation since you’ll need a new wick for the reborn candle. And since the flame is generated by burning wax vapors, the candle will actually get a little smaller every time it burns all the way through.
But before that happens, the Rekindle should let you use your candles again and again, which is particularly useful during a winter where storms have been shutting down cities not used to the snow and cold. If you want one — in your choice of stainless steel, anodised aluminium or porcelain — you’ll have to contact Benjamin Shine directly. Or live with the fact you’re not using candles to their full potential. [Benjamin Shine via DudeIWantThat]
