A crash course in changing the world.
I hate long blog posts so I will get straight to the point in hopes you read and comment on it.
My idea is this: a Verticle Cylindrical Light Prism. (for people unfamiliar with prisms, they recieve light at one end and effectively disperse and radiate it throughout the entire prism, is that accurate?)
It would run from the outside top of a house to the basement of your house exposed 360* and would probably have a 2-3 ft diameter. I was thinking it would also need some mirrors to help concentrate light at the top end of the prism and some more at the base to increase dispersed light at the bottom level of the home.
Is this a tangible, viable idea? I want to hear what people think, especially if you have any expertise in optics, engineering or any other related field. I know nothing about this, but the idea has remained with me. I hope to inspire other agents and to encourage them to think outside of the box!
What are the material/production costs?
How much light would be produced throughout the column?
Is cylindrical the best type of prism for the job?
What could improve my design? What's wrong with it?
What questions aren't I asking?
