Solar Powered Blinds That Become a Lamp at Night

The Solar Vertical Lamp is one of those concepts that straddles the line between crazy and genius. They look like standard vertical blinds but on the backside are solar panels. During the day, the blinds block the sunlight while charging up. At night with the blinds closed, there are LED lights embedded right into the blinds in different lamp-like shapes. The blinds use the power they’ve collected during the day to light themselves up at night. The results are customizable and unique looking. I could see this in a modern designer hotel perhaps with the “lamps” reflecting the silhouettes of famous designer lighting. Interesting concept.
