This intelligent mirror bends sunlight where you want it


As the shorter days of winter begin, it's not unusual for people who live in the northern region to start feeling depressed, grumpy, and exhausted. These symptoms are signs that they might be experiencing seasonal affective disorder, commonly referred to as SAD.

This type of depression not only affects their health, but it also affects their everyday life, including their work and relationships. Other symptoms of SAD include sleeping more than usual, inability to focus and think clearly, and increased appetite. But what if there was an easy way that could alleviate these winter blues?

Enter Lucy, a solar-powered, weatherproof device designed to offer a solution for people who suffer from SAD.
"Lucy's 100% weatherproof sphere houses a highly reflective mirror designed to automatically track the movement of the sun throughout the day using an array of photosensors, adjusting the reflected beam of sunshine to a set point for up to 7,000 lumens of mood-enhancing light. And because the mirror is flat, the reflected sunlight is dispersed rather than magnified, creating a more even spread of light."
