Clueless Bottles

[Location: Buea, Cameroon | Central Africa] I buy a local fruit juice that is sold in glass bottles about 6 inches high and that can hold about 310ml of liquid. Funnily enough, the company that fabricates these drinks does nothing to recollect used bottles and neither is there some company set up here for recycling of glass or anything like that. Business-wise, this tells me a lot I could benefit from. However I am now in possession of about 100 of these bottles and I have no clue what to do with them.  Any suggestions? -Cheers Attached: Image of Bottle

Team Realtree Outdoor Energy Cans/Metal Bottles

I've been brainstorming Christmas ideas for my Dad.  He's in the military, and is an avid hunter.  I want to make something creative that can also be useful, and I keep coming back to these energy drink cans/metal bottles that I've been drinking lately.  They look like this: http://swayzesghost.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/2-team-real-tree-energy-drink-aluminum-bottles_320632715918.jpg And I'm thinking it would be really cool if I somehow could mount a strap on them and find someway to make them useful as a holder for something... but what?  My creativity is lacking here.  Or maybe a lamp?  What do you guys think?  Any good ideas or links to similar projects?

1.5 Litre Waterbottles, Lots of them.. what can I do with them!

Hi there! I live in an area that I've got to buy bottled water because the water here isnt so good. So every week I go through like 12 bottles of water. We have recycling, but going down to the recycling bin every couple days is annoying. So I figured that there must be something I can do with them. I can do planting and such, so I'm looking into that. But in reality I cant plant 300 different plants! So what sort of things do you think I could do with all these bottles?UpdateThanks for the comments guys (gals)! Some of these ideas are really really good! I just either (a) lack the lake/body of water to build the rafts (b) have no desire to launch myself into the air (c) or live where it doesn't rain....Either way, I love these ideas. I thought this topic got buried! THANKS!!

Years ago a friend of mine showed me an easy way to pop the top off a glass bottle. The bit with the threads just snapped off. Now I can't remember how the heck she did it. I think she used two bottles and rubbed them together somehow. Does anyone know this trick? or another, also easy trick?

Pop bottle caps?

I have been saving pop bottle caps for a short time now.  But with the amount of pop my wife and I drink I am going to have them coming out of my ears in no time.  So anyone have any crafting ideas to do with pop bottle caps?  One thing I thought of was to make a computer case out of them.  But maybe I have watched that video of the guy making an 8-bit Zelda case out of wooden blocks too much.

DIY Bottle Filler?

I fill, cap and label my own small paints (craft/ceramic).  The bottles range (in volume) from 1/2oz - 8oz.  The most common, and the one I'm most concerned about speeding up, is the 1/2oz bottle size. I currently use large ketchup/mustard bottles, which means I'm continually re-filling those bottles for any given batch I'm filling. I've been trying to figure out how I could create my own DIY bottle-filler, as a commercially-available, bench-top filler is several thousand dollars. What I've envisioned up to now is some sort of air-tight container to hold the paint with an air-compressor (at a very low pressure, but enough to push  the liquid through when gravity won't) connected at the top and a tube connected at the bottom.  At the other end of the tube (to be held by the user) would be a nozzle with a release valve of some sort. Anyone have some more technical thoughts on how I might achieve this contraption?

Soda Bottle Skylights

I love ingenuity, so I wanted to share this link to an article on a Brazilian machinist who makes skylights from water filled pop bottles. I'm not sure if these would classify as a budget solatube or a twenty first century deck prism.There's also a video, but it's in some obscure foreign language. Portuguese i think.I might add one to my shed...

Bottled light in the Philipines

There's a novel, simple idea spreading in the Philipines - using bottles of water as skylights. The concept is staggeringly simple - slum dwellings are dark, and need light, even in the daytime. Though they have electricity, it is the most expensive in the area, so they can't afford to use powered lights. Instead, they use water. A two-litre bottle of water, with a little bleach to prevent algal growth, is set into a section of metal sheeting, which in turn is set into the roofs of dwellings, workshops, even chicken-coops.  The water-bottle refracts the light in all directions, instead of letting it shine through in a single beam, and provides as much illumination as a traditional 60W bulb. OK, so this is old news to some people, but it's new to me. For more information, have a look at the Litre of Light website, or just have a poke around Google and YouTube.

How To Inflate Plastic Bottles- into balloons- With Heat and Air Pressure?

1).  I would like to use PET drinking water bottles  and polyethylene plastic bottles ( taco Sauce, mustard, plastic juice bottles)- for insulation in an  attic? Choice 1). using a heat source like a heat gun and my air compressor can I inflate old PET plastic water bottles - into balloons to act as insulation spheres ?   Each week  I would spend time turning the plastic bottles into thin-walled spheres that would fill up the attic with light-weight spheres- maybe the size of a soccer ball?  . 2). If Not  choice 1). lets learn how to process plastic bags and packaging into a shredded stringy material to do the attic insulation job. The source of bottles is endless and I hate recycling these to the city and then purchasing expensive fiberglass batt insulation at $40 per roll.  Any DIY wizards try this stuff?  I could literally mega-insulate the attic. If treating the material with Sodium tetra-borate  borax -to get a fire resistance that is doable too. They make clothes, blankets, molded items and padding routinely from old bottles: Why can't I? I would build a shredder or modify a branch shredder machine to do this and make it my recycling hobby over the long term.

70-note "Bottle Organ"

Here's one for you... I'm looking to create a 70 note bottle organ, inspired by this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzucpFgi7Xk Except I'm wanting to build mine in a more "automatic" state - played via MIDI notes, an arduino and lots and lots of solenoids making spoons hit the bottles.. That side of it I've got covered thanks to other excellent instructables which have taught me a lot about micro electronics. What I am currently trying to work out is if there is a way to change the pitch of bottles in any way except simply adding water. Would another liquid achieve the same results with less "spill risk"? Does it even need to be a liquid? I'm guessing it needs to be a liquid as I believe the physics of the noise made when a bottle is struck is based on the water absorbing vibrations, making them slower and lowering the pitch. If anyone has experience tuning multiple bottles to be struck as an instrument then please do reply! Alternatively if anyone has any novel suggestions for things which would be easier to persuade 70 notes out of then please also reply! End goal - be able to play flight of the bumblebee at full speed with chords and out-nerd the guys in the video. Ideally on bottles. Many thanks! Leo

Would it be safe or applicable to make Airsoft goggles from soda bottles?

I was recently working on This Instructable when I realized something. I was pumping up soda bottles to very high temperatures, and then shooting them with guns to make them explode, you know, for the lulz. I tried to set the targets off with an array of powerful Airsoft guns, and they would simply not explode, or leak, or dent, or really do anything but go *plink*. These bottles were pressurized at about 80 PSI, and I was shooting at pretty close range (okay, closer that was really safe, but let's just disregard that right now) and nothing happened to the bottles. This got me thinking. I depresssurized the bottles, and went after them at a range of about half an inch with all of my Airsoft guns. Not a scratch. The plastic in these bottles is clear and flexible. My basic question is this: do you think it would be safe to make these bottles into goggles for Airsoft? I have been wanting to build some different masks for a while, to my own design, but the lenses have always been a problem, because they are expensive, inflexible, and cannot be easily cut or shaped. This bottle material is clear, practically free, appears to be just as tough, and can be layered without any visual distortion. What say you, Instructables?
