Penumbra inspired glowstick

After playing through Penumbra with the trusty glowstick (never found much use for the flashlight), I was driven to get a glowstick for myself. Chemical ones are wasteful, I didn't like the light diffusion of most LED ones, and the nicer Krill ones are kinda pricey.

After some thought, I hobbled together part of a flashlight, some plain paper, a marker and some tape, and ended up with this. Great light output for getting around the house at night. I can see quite well, but I still am adjusted to the dark. Linky to a short demo vid.

I think it'd be better if you attack some sort of reflector inside the other end of the tube for better light dispersion. Aside from that, pretty cool.

Do not fear the darkness, but welcome its embrace.
