Piped sunlight

And Sunportal said: "Let there be indoor light."

Do you work in a bland corporate office bathed perpetually in artificial light? Do you long to wander outside and bask in the sun instead of staring vacantly at your computer screen? If so, you should probably get a new job, but some semi-relief might be on the way if the folks at U.K.-based Sunportal have any say. Sunportal has a system that pipes fresh sunlight throughout the interior of large buildings or underground. The “sunlight” is collected by some manner of solar contraption (even on cloudy days!) and then funneled through the pipes. This is exactly what the residents of Springfield could have used when Mr. Burns up and stole the sun.
