Get around Earth Hour with the Lightway!

Damien Savio, an Australian Industrial Design student, designed for his final year project, a window panel that can absorb sunlight during the day, and at night become a light. Apparently his design is able to convert 4 hours of direct sunlight to a 60W light source for 6 hours. Very clever.
The design is a finalist for Australian Design Awards-Dyson Student Award which will be announced in May. I’m rooting for you mate!
With this product you now don’t really have to switch off for tomorrow’s Earth Hour. You have heard of the Earth Hour happening tomorrow 29 March at 8pm right?
