I wonder if he used a real church key to make the holes? What with all the pop-top cans these days I wonder if you can still buy a church key? If you could, how many of the younger generation would know what it was?

Yes, isn't that a similar concept behind the new IMOD (Mirasol) panels been promoted as the next panels since these do not need back panel lighting. I can't wait to see these babies on mass productions and finally been able to use my notebook outdoors by the pool.

Yes, the 'cans' look impressively like metal cans. On the subject of unexpected colors, the recently aired NOVA program "Making Stuff: Smaller" mentioned that the shape and size of (tiny) particles can influence the color. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/tech/making-stuff.html#making-stuff-smaller
