Justin Vandenbroucke University of Wisconsin—Madison assistant professor of physics and a researcher at the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC) – See more at: link The Flotonix PocketPb will also be a sensor network for cosmic rays with a specific purpose: to detect heavy metals in our drinking water continuously and automatically. The science behind this is […]
Because natural skies look more like the picture on the right, a simulated sky such as in the virtual skylight benefits from a single lit edge. The unique Evonic material in the vs allows color stacking so the ideal design might place a warm 2700K edgelit panel on top of a 6500K panel lit from […]
Close to the Virtual Skylight Solar concept except lacking color sensing. $214 AU dollars ($158 USD) with the solar panel is pretty good though. Illumi Link
Sun Frame is really a tunable white backlight meant as a fake window, and at $999 without the picture. Although 3X larger than the Virtual Skylight it generates a low 750 lumen. But they got something right, the circadian rhythm.
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 […]
The Virtual Skylight Portable model is designed to use as a natural daylight lamp anywhere you go, as it carries a 30WH rechargeable battery pack in its slim 24″ x 2″ x 1″ package. This allows a week of natural morning light synchronized to the sun in both brightness and color. A Lenovo charger is […]
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Researchers at the University of New Mexico have a new high-tech venue to study the effects of light on how and when you sleep.
The beauty of a sun controlled luminaire such as the VS extends beyond the health and productivity benefits. For example, if you wish to turn the light on to maximum and to have that continuously you would open the phone app and set a virtual journey, one that follows the sun throughout the day and […]
Current loop is an ideal way to connect the sun to the VS, as it can run over long distances with little emi or interference, and doing this over CAT5 cable twisted pairs make this an economical analog connection. The VS2 prototype being assembled this week has three components and a single control: LED panel […]
