What counts as "building" a flashlight? (flashlight contest) Answered
I have a question about the flashlight competition as I don't find the rules very clear.
I'll try to explain my view of the rules through some ibles that are entered. In no way do I wish to judge the coolness, build of the ible nor the ible itself so keep that in mind. I also don't mean to target these ibles in any way I'm just using them as examples. If they are following the rules of the contest I wish them the best of luck.
My question is: "as we need to use or build a flashlight what counts as building one?"
For example the illuminate your fingers ible . Can this be considered a flashlight? I mean it ofcourse lights up in the dark but can it be considerd a flashlight by just lighting up the dark?
Another example is the steampunk Aethersaber . It's a sword that lights up. Is it a flashlight?
My last example is the recharge your glow-stick ible. Can a glow-stick be considerd a flash light?
So that's basicly my question. Do these ibles count as making a flashlight or not?
I'm currently building a project of my own that I hope to get entered before the deadline. And in that project I'll be using a flashlight without any modding so I guess that one is pretty safe. But I also had some cool ideas that involved leds and normal light bulbs. But I don't think the ible would be any good then for this contest. But after seeing the ibles I use above I'm not so sure anymore. That's why I created this topic.
