Fake Window Blinds Create Optical Illusion

Makoto Hirahara's Bright Blinds are not what you would expect. At first glance, they look like an ordinary pair of blinds, but upon further inspection you'd be surprised to find out that there's actually no window behind them. So what do these blinds do if they don't block out sunlight?

Hirahara's Bright Blinds actually serve a lamp-like function. They are made of electroluminescent (EL) sheets, which means that you can control the amount of light the blinds produce by turning the plastic stick, just like real blinds.

Bright Blinds are available here, but it may take a little while to be shipped because they are all handmade.
