Daniel Rybakken’s idea for creating a window that produces “daylight” quality light was geared towards the Scandinavian population, where large parts of the year are subject to limited daylight. As anyone who suffers from Seasonal Affective Disorder will tell you, not having daylight makes a room smaller, makes you feel depressed, and generally takes the wind out of your sails, so to speak.
The window of daylight is interfaced with a computer, so the device could act as an alarm clock as well as giving an idea of some depth beyond the four walls of the room you’re in.
Do you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder? Does daylight and light therapy help you? I would like to know how it affects you – please post in the comments, and you’re more than welcome to post anonymously if you need.
