==Plan== * Prototype ** First, we should create a small proof of concept ** The aperture should be at least 10E-2 m^2 to properly demonstrate the effect (why that specific size? I don't know, just a gut feeling) ** Assuming we'll need want something like [https://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/167463/how-much-lux-does-the-sun-emit 10E5 lux] to approximate the Sun's brightness, we'll need to use a light source that produces at least 10E3 lumens (10E5 lux = (10E3 / 10E-2) lumens/m^2). ** For this phase of the project, we could just make a smaller version of what's described in the video. It might be nice to avoid having to use soapy water to simulate the scattering, so we can take this opportunity to explore other options, but if we can't figure out a more elegant solution, soapy water it is! * Pilot ** Assuming a convincing prototype is produced, we may want to spec out a larger unit ** Something on the order of 1 m^2 feels like it could be pretty impressive ** Based on the calculation above, this would require a 10E5 lumens light source, which will draw a lot of power and produce a lot of heat * Profit ** ...haha just kidding, let's see if we can get a prototype working
