    I'm pretty sure you need,
    Any high intensity LED's 2.5v, 150lm X 2
    Jar lid
    Thermos/Can
    Glue
    USB cables

    That is an awesome idea. I just turned on my lava lamp and removed the "lava" part and in about a minute it got too hot to put my hand over. Trying it tomorrow :D

    It works nice but it took me a minimum 5 minutes with a desktop computer

    what's the black paint glue he used??? I found 6v and 2.8v halogen bulbs at ACE hardware they get pretty hot maybe hot enough to make popcorn.
