Sunflower

You Are My Sunshine

If you’ve ever wished you could take control of the sun and send some warm rays your way, you’re in luck. That’s exactly what the Sunflower Home heliostat is designed to do. The pinwheel-shaped device tracks the sun throughout the day and uses angled mirrors to redirect sunbeams to wherever they’re lacking -- in a room starved of natural light, for instance, or a garden that’s too shady. It runs on solar power, so there are no batteries or wires to manipulate.

You Are My Sunshine

If you’ve ever wished you could take control of the sun and send some warm rays your way, you’re in luck. That’s exactly what the Sunflower Home heliostat is designed to do. The pinwheel-shaped device tracks the sun throughout the day and uses angled mirrors to redirect sunbeams to wherever they’re lacking -- in a room starved of natural light, for instance, or a garden that’s too shady. It runs on solar power, so there are no batteries or wires to manipulate.

You can set up the Sunflower to reflect light toward a specific target at a certain time of day. You could have it pour light into your kitchen window each morning, for example. The target has a range, so as the day passes, reflected light may travel over the surface of your house and shine into other rooms, too.

The creators of the Sunflower are engineers WiCher Lim and John Koger, who are striving to make solar products more affordable, less complicated, and more mainstream. Their heliostat is ideal for people who’d like to work with solar energy but didn’t know where to begin. Increasing the natural light in homes is a great start -- natural light can alleviate eye strain caused by fluorescent lighting, and it can help offset seasonal affective disorder. Using natural light to brighten your home can also decrease your electricity consumption and carbon footprint.

Just imagine your own personal sun. Where would you like to brighten up?
