Solar-powered Lucy tracks the sun to brighten any indoor space

Lack of sunlight can lead to everything from Vitamin D deficiency to seasonal affective disorder. Solenica , founded by Diva Tommei, came up with a bright solution: Lucy, a smart, solar-powered natural lighting system. Lucy tracks sunlight and reflects it inside to brighten even the darkest spaces. Solenica is currently crowdfunding on Indiegogo , offering Lucy for a reduced price. According to Solenica, for 90 percent of our lives we live indoors, missing out on the benefits of natural sunlight . Those who live through dreary winters or are simply more sensitive to a lack of light suffer. Solenica’s Lucy eases that suffering through an “articulated mirror” that follows the sun using a “proprietary algorithm” to reflect bright light into a home throughout the day. Lucy makes slight adjustments as the sun moves to bring more sunshine inside. Lucy can be placed indoors or outdoors – Solenica also sells a security lock if users want to place the device outside – and can easily be moved to different spots around the home. Related: Lucy is a robotic sunlight reflector that brings light into every dark corner of your house Lucy is a green alternative too: users can save energy and money by using the natural lighting system instead of electricity-fueled lamps. Lucy runs solely on solar power, and doesn’t include wires. The only time a user has to turn on the device is when they pull it out of the box. Italian design inspired Solenica to create a device that wouldn’t stand out but would rather add beauty to a home. Solenica started crowdfunding yesterday on Indiegogo and while they’ve reached around 300 percent of their goal, their early bird special is still available. After the campaign Lucy will cost $299, but right now Solenica is offering 200 Lucys for $199. Backers also have the option to purchase more than one or to purchase security locks.
