Another approach to bringing the sky inside is to well… fake it. Sky Factory has designed an LED screen of clouds rolling past a blue sky for places such as hospitals where patients are often buried deep in the middle of a huge complex. The display mimics the light levels of the day outside to help occupants feel more connected and to improve their circadian rhythms.

Engaurd is a simple batt insulation that performs similar to fiberglass but it’s made from 50% recycled PET plastic and uses a lot less energy to produce. It ups the ante being hydrophobic and fully recyclable. It’s possible to make the product with 100% recycled material, however a big chemical company is sitting on the patent without making a similar product.
