Fake Blinds - But do they make you feel better?

Sunlight has been shown to improve emotional health, but windowless rooms and offices are a reality of life. So this concept just may have some merit - the Bright Blind by Studio Mongoose, fake blinds which attach to a windowless wall and create the illusion of sunlight creeping in. It's accomplished by electroluminescent sheets on the back of each individual blind - and the brightness is even controlled in the usual way, by rotating the blind-angle rod. It's a pretty impressive illusion from the photos, but the merit of the product should hinge on its ability to boost a user's emotional state, prevent seasonal affective disorder, and all that stuff. Otherwise it's a mere novelty, a conversation lighting piece - but still, a pretty slick one!
