Dear all
I have used a bulb which is filled in with water, it works like a convex lens to concentrate solar energy.
The performance of the water bulb gets highest level when I incline the bulb like in the clip. Solar light beam focus on a bigger dot, in compared with the dot when let the bulb standing vertically.

See my clip at

So you have progressed from toy magnet rockers as perpetuum mobiles, aired with slight variations over four different threads in another forum site, to the thoroughly understood case of a spherical convex lens. Anything new in that YouTube demo worth discussing?
