A little light to help you find your way home in the dark — for the rest of your life
Let's not pretend: we're all in the dark when it comes right down to it.
Nabokov wrote in "Speak, Memory," his 1951 memoir, that "Our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness."
Might as well not trip and fall while you're here if you can help it.
This little keychain light glows green — or blue or orange, if you prefer — when everything and everyone else has given up the ghost.
After The Apocalypse, cockroaches will glow like this but for now you'll have to make do with storebought.

It says 10 years. I'm hoping to be around longer.

A Trittium-powered keychain fob. 3He has a half life of 12.3 years and that means that your fob would be 1/4th as bright in 1/4th of a century.
