Illuminated Thermodynamic Bubbler
"Boils" in response to heat from its bulbs (see it in action below). Once the liquid rises to the top after quite some time, simply cup your hand around the top bulb; the heat of your palm will return the liquid to the bottom to burble up again.
The box may be opened and used to store your things. The vial sits in a flexible stand, so if it takes a bump, it avoids breaking and can be easily set upright again.
