Do you think you'd be able to grow plants with this level of light? Definitely seems brighter than the average British day's weather, but I'm not sure how well artificial light works with plants? Although it would probably be far too demanding to keep the light on for several hours a day so maybe not a great idea, but theoretically, would it be possible?

Question! Would the result be different if the soap water was positioned right next to the light in a much smaller frame? So that the light goes through the soap water first and then gets reflected by the parabol? Seems a bit easier to maintain as I'm not sure how long the water in the frame could be left without growing algae? Or maybe that isn't a problem. A really expensive option for the sky effect would be to use aerogel instead of soap water. :) Looked up the pricing and it'd be 200$ for a 5.0 cm x 7.5 cm x 0.7 cm rectangle piece... Yikes haha

there should be a company working on finding a solution that doesn't take up that much space feels like this could be an absolute game changer. The only thing it's lacking now is making you warm when you're in the light.

I wonder if anyone knows where the line of gasket came from that he used to seal the water in between the two sheets of glass. I've been thinking about using a can of flex seal, but I don't know if that would be better or worse than the solution in the video, and I don't know how to get it to stick in all the right places (and importantly, if it will even stick to glass). Anyone have ideas?

While I do love it, the sheer size of it, and space required for it, is more than I think most of us have. Anyway, neat project.

I think your channel had been building up to this project for a while. I also think you became a solid story-teller, which allowed this video to be the most succinct, consumable and accurate iteration than it could have been. Love how it balances sience and the DIY breakdown without skipping a beat. Cheers to you bud. You are allright. One thing I learned for filmaking, was to use something like ROSCO's OB #5372 "sky blue" paint to bounce a bit of the same light source type (I know they make other poducts but I couldn't find the product numbers). The two sources (direct and bounced) then mix in to give a similar effect without having to lug around a wonderfully crafted thin fish tank with soapy water. Really enjoyuiung your videos, and don't you for a second think we forgot that you have that monster COB you promised to make a video on :)

I love art with a deep passion. I also think shoe-horning "A" for art into S.T.E.M. is fucking retarded. S.T.E.A.M. sounds so contrived. Not differently abled, but fucking retarded. As out-of-place inappropriate as an undertaker at a wedding. On the other hand, your beautiful synthetic sun-light is so creative and brilliant. What it must feel like in there on winter mornings with a hot cup of coffee in your hand and a soft woman in your lap.

I wonder if it would be possible to make a few of these, put them in a few separate conditioned attic spaces connected to a cooling loop, and run sun tunnels down into fake bedroom windows? With a timer and dimmer, you could use it as a natural alarm clock no matter the weather or time of year/day.
