A woman takes a lover home during the day while her husband is at work.  Her 9-year old son comes home unexpectedly, sees them and hides in the bedroom closet to watch.  The woman’s husband also comes home. She puts her lover in the closet, not realizing that the little boy is already there.

—The little boy says, ‘Dark in here.’

—The man says, ‘Yes, it is.’

—Boy: ‘I have a baseball.’

—Man: ‘That’s nice’

—Boy: ‘Want to buy it?’

—Man: ‘No, thanks.’

—Boy: ‘My Dad’s outside.’

—Man: ‘OK, how much?’

—Boy: ‘$250′

In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the lover are in the closet together.

—Boy: ‘Dark in here.’

—Man: ‘Yes, it is.’

—Boy: ‘I have a baseball glove.’

The lover, remembering the last time, asks the boy, ‘How much?’

—Boy: ‘$750′

—Man: ‘Sold.’

A few days later, the Dad says to the boy, ‘Grab your glove, let’s go outside and have a game of catch.’

The boy says, ‘I can’t, I sold my baseball and my glove.’

The Dad asks, ‘How much did you sell them for?’

—Boy: ‘$1,000′

The Dad says, ‘That’s terrible to over charge your friends like that…that is way more than those two things cost. I’m taking you to church, to confession.’

They go to the church and the Dad makes the little boy sit in the confessional booth and closes the door.

—The boy says, ‘Dark in here.’

The priest says, ‘Don’t start that trick again; you’re in my closet now.’

Harnessing rainpower to generate electricity under an umbrella.

Harnessing rainpower to generate electricity under an umbrella.

Designer Sang-Kyun Park is a man who likes to be under the spotlight, specially when it rains.  The heavier the rainfall, the more attention he will attract.  How is this?  Let me explain.

San-Kyun Park invented a peculir umbrella that generates light from falling rain.  The heavier the amount of rain that fall into the umbrella, the brighter the umbrella will shine.  He named his invention Light Drops.

The LightDrops umbrella transforms the potential energy of falling water into electrical energy by using a PDVF conductive membrane. This electrical energy then powers an array of LEDs, making the umbrella glow bright in the dark.

The LightDrops umbrella is both stylish and energy conscious, a symbol of all the power in the world that we can harness if we put our minds to it. Beyond the symbolic, we have to admit—this is a bright idea.  :-)  Good Day.
