Dr. Gray Made No Mention of This

This is a cool use of fiber optics to transport light from outside to an inside room. It's like the skylight that isn't really. My friend Robin has something similar. Her house has these 8ish inch diameter tubes coated with reflective material on the inside that run from the roof down to her first floor so she can get natural sunlight even without roof access. These Swedish engineers have just taken it to the next level.
