Electronic Candle

This is a great electronic candle that allows you to light it with a match and then extinguish it by pressing it between your fingers. There is additional information in the Elektronika dla Wszystkich magazine which I unfortunately don’t have. I am thinking that the system is using the LED as a light sensor and detecting the bright flame from the match and the darkness that is produced when it is squeezed between the fingers but am not exactly sure. Does anyone get that magazine? If so I would like to know if that is indeed how it works.
