Allen Samuels: Device Concept For Ambient Light Collecting Device

Stamps Dean and Professor Emeritus Allen Samuels introduces a concept and design for an ambient light collecting stick. The device could be located in any room of a living space, allowing natural and artificial light to be collected and processed to make usable electricity. An outlet at each end of the stick invites a user to plug in any electrical device. 

By describing the concept in text and models, this initiates what hopefully will be further development, resulting in an actual functioning device.
