Mitsubishi’s LED skylights are perfect for the subterranean apocalypse



Stuck in an underground bunker to avoid nuclear fallout for the rest of time? Have we got a product for you!

Mitsubishi has released a new LED light panel that mimics the three-dimensional appearance and light output of a skylight.

The idea was first announced in 2018. But this February, more specifics came to light (as spotted by Gizmodo) with a name, sale date, and a price tag. The Misola system will come out in October 2020, and will go for between $6,200 and $6,800, depending on whether it’s programmed manually or automatically. 

The panel achieves the appearance of a skylight in two ways. First, it uses the precisely pixelated LED output to make the blue color and light output mimic the color and directional light of the sky. 

Second, the panel seems to have depth by creating a white border, with one side apparently in shadow. Perspective techniques: they work!

Let there be light.

Mitsubishi envisions this as a solution to help soulless office workers toiling under a low-lit, low-ceilinged room. That’s certainly one use, but boy, would we kill for one of these if we were locked underground with the rest of humanity’s survivors. Yes, KILL.
