freezing bottles of water in my holey roof.....no thanks lol
definately is a warmer climate solution, but for people to receive natural light indoors where they wouldn't normally be able to do so is great. I'm envisioning bed-ridden people who haven't seen the light of day in ages, can only imagine how such a simple item could make a world of difference to them. Although I do wonder why they haven't installed multiples of these, or sheets of this plastic in the ceilings before. Although I guess they probably do.
It essentially is just a miniature skylight, so would be installed much the same way I would imagine, the water just allowing the light to reach a broader area than a shaft of light.
We've done bottles of water with some food coloring in them on the window sills before. I don't know that it extended the area the light reached, but it sure was pretty.
