Virtual Skylighting is about to take a new twist: stackable daylighting LED rods that connect together like LEGOs. This will allow these thin rods of tunable white to be arranged as an assembly of up to six per power supply/battery pack.
Imagine a circular arrangement of these around an interior cupola: at dawn the easternmost rod begins to illuminate the room below with the reddish tint of the rising sun. As the morning progresses, the eastern group gradually expands spatially as neighboring rods are activated and the light increases with a cooler hue, just as the sun is doing outside. At midday all of the rods in the circle are lit to maximum intensity. The afternoon sees a shift to the western rods and a lowering of brightness and color temperature, culminating with a single warm white rod at the westernmost extent gradually extinguished as the sun sets.
For a portable or UPS assembly, Li-ion battery pack will take on this new stackable form. We plan to use the same connector as is used on the innovative Lenovo Yoga notebook computer:
Each linear element LED rod and Li-ion rod will have an Espressive ESP32 Wifi/BT module with dual core Transilica processor so will connect to your smartphone for customization and also will communicate with each other. These will be web servers for your use as well as web clients that will access worldwide web cams to collect sunlight brightness and hue, a true revolution in Natural lighting available this August.
