Night Light

Night-time construction is pretty common in Japan, so the idea is to keep the noise down and light pollution to a minimum, while providing enough illumination to work under.  What we have here is an interestingly low-tech approach.  A diesel engine powering some lightbulbs inside a torus-shaped sheet of white plastic. The sheet diffuses the light, making it less harsh and spreading it more uniformly around the area.
