@itsthomson Hi Thomson, thanks! Of course I can explain how Lucy works. Lucy has a transparent sphere that contains an intelligent mirror. This mirror is connected to a network of photosensors that allow it to follow the sun throughout the day and illuminate any spot you decide to point her at. Pointing is a simple gesture. So, basically, you just place her anywhere you have a view of sunlight, then point her where you want to illuminate, and enjoy that sunlight. Of course, she is solar-powered so you don't need to plug her in.
This is great! Our office doesnt get enough sunlight...how many would I need for a 3k ft office?

@eportnoy Hi Eli, thanks for your question, it's a really important one. An average room of 250 square feet needs 5000 lumens (lumens are units of intensity of light, in the US it would be the equivalent of 465 foot candles) to be properly lit. Now, one Lucy illuminates the equivalent of 7000 lumens (654 foot candles) so on an average room basis, it over-delivers! In your case to illuminate 3000 square feet you would need only 8 Lucy's. They would add a lot of interior design nice Italian decor :)
