Solar Vertical Lamp

I just wrote a post on Inhabitat about these solar vertical lamps that we found on Yanko Design.  They're essentially vertical blinds with mini photovoltaics that gather solar energy while you're away at work.  When you get home, you just close the blinds to light your space with these LED pixels in the shape of table lamps, floor lamps, or chandeliers.  You save tons of money on your energy bill, and they're definitely a conversation piece.  The only bad thing is that you'd have to have vertical blinds in every single window....and vertical blinds are just so ugly.  Still, a brilliantly simple idea.
