The Himawari Lighting System promises to make indoor sunbathing, horticulture, and general safe enjoyment of sunlight possible by using a system that stores sunlight and uses fiberoptic cables to beam it to the special light fixtures of a building.AA The light fixtures themselves filter the UV radiation out.AA The system works by using large dishlike collectors that actually pursue the sun’s angle as it crosses the sky.AA Check it out, it looks kinda tight.AA There are actually already several applications of said system operating in Japan.
