Benjamin Shine creates an old-school light source that can rise from its own ashes

Candles lend themselves extremely well to recycling, but the only problem is that it often requires some effort on your part, and the potential to make a mess. The¬†Rekindle regenerative candle from Benjamin Shine on the other hand, takes care of all the hard work for you, and only requires that you insert a new wick every time your candle is “reborn.”

While this particular candle holder will set the mood, or provide you with a cheap light source for a very long time, it won’t last forever. Every time the candle burns all the way through, it will actually get a little bit smaller, but there’s nothing that can be done about that because it’s a fundamental chemical reaction.

Hopefully an (almost) infinite candle will be enough to interest you, in which case you should¬†contact Benjamin Shine¬†directly. With enough support for the idea, it could even become a common household item, so don’t be shy about sending him a message.
