Working indoors under artificial lighting isn’t optimal for our health or that of our planet?or our mood, for that matter. But we can’t all move our desks outdoors. That’s why innovator SunCentral is working on a technological breakthrough that could bring sunlight to your workplace.
Even if you don’t have a window office.
As The Globe and Mail reports, British Columbia-based SunCentral is designing ?computerized collector panels located on the sun-facing exterior walls of buildings to gather and concentrate sunlight, which is transported and dispersed inside the building by special light guides.?
These light guides are made of highly reflective material that SunCentral hopes may someday become standard in prefab building panels. SunCentral plans to begin commercial production in 2013.
