    Genius, except it’s limited to warm, dry climates. Here, in Canada, we need ceilings with 2 feet of insulation and a plastic vapour barrier to stop air movement above the top floor before we even get to the roof.

    It doesn’t look like any electric power is being generated. Instead it sounds just like the kitchen skylight we have (here in sunny Florida).

    Yeah the tops of the bottles need to be poking through the roof so that the sunlight can be refracted into the room. In other words, perfect for third-world countries that either don’t have a room or have one made out of logs, etc.

    He seems to have re-invented the solar tube using water rather than prisms or reflective surfaces to bend the light.
