Nov 27 2007Bright Blinds: Add A Window To A Blank Wall

Two Japanese designers have created Bright Blinds, which are blinds to be hung on blank walls to give the appearance of a window underneath. Electroluminescent sheeting is responsible for the simulated daylight, and the amount of light emitted is controlled via the same methods as traditional blinds. Not nearly as cool as Philip's Dynamic Daylight Window, but a neat concept none-the-less. Except they won't work. It's like the time I tried to cheer myself up at the office, despite working in a windowless interior cubicle. You know what I did? I drew a window on my whiteboard -- with a beach outside, complete with palm trees and bikini babes. And let me tell you, that shit didn’t work worth a damn. If anything I was even more depressed.

Completely useful, realistic fake window won't help your social life one bit [sci-fi]

Heh, that's pretty neat I must say. (proto-)

Pas du tout j' avoue...Très bonne idée

yeah what #2 said. Oh wait what he say? I do agree though it might actually be a cool idea.

Here I Am Again Spamming The Board Because I'm A Fag

there is no need for this item, our world is a place of beauty and polluted with human invention. the very thing we desotry with condensed living space is yet what we want artificially with such an item. the earth will not yield to such irrational beings. i am sorry but we are doomed. social reform and way of mind must undergo dramtic revoultion. Though i have seen many battles as a samurai and have gone through manny hardships, i cannot defeat human stupidity and their transient items. there are just too many stupid people.

the way of the samurai...

EL's expensive. I wonder how much these things will cost.

Hey, number 5 (or "Ok", if that IS your real name..) you're a douche. Firstly, you are not a samurai, so shut up. Secondly, no one is gonna build a room without a window specifically for the purpose of putting one of these in, idiot. This product is for peopls who dont have any windows in their rooms for whatever reason; over crowding, small appartments, refugee camps etc.

I think it's a cool product.

OMG!!! I'm a samurai, too. What are the chances?

i like it. it's really great. i need one right now.

Meh. Sears and JCPenny's have had these for years. Ever been in their window dressings department?

Shut up you little samurais, or i going to punish you!!!

Wow. They can make any thing these days.

All samurai to me, we shall crush these small minded fools, then commit sepuku as protest to the nature of society

hi.. does anyone know where i can get a high resolution image of this?

thank you,

Raúl..

oooh my goodness..u guys r genius

An interesting idea. This would also work with Roman Blinds - If anyone wants to try downloading our tutorial and sending in photos we may use them on our website. http://www.easyproblinds.com

To the person who commented with the below item. Obviously, you don't work in a cubicle most of your waking life and that's why you don't see that there is no need for this and it's pollution. Sorry bud.
