Lucy is a robot that bends sunlight into your Home

Lucy is a robot that bends sunlight into your Home

Solenica wants to break the existing paradigm in the residential natural lighting space with "Lucy", the designer robot that illuminates your home with natural sunlight. In fact, we lose our vitality by living in homes that are artificially illuminated, and we should be exposed to sunlight anytime we can because it activates vitamin D, which prevents cancer, and it makes us happier and more productive by increasing our serotonin and melatonin levels.
We have identified a strong unsatisfied interest in the current ugly, expensive and intrusive natural lighting solutions for the home. Our designer robot "Lucy" is beautiful, affordable and easy-to-use. Equipped with an optical 'eye' connected to a motorised mirror that tracks the sun from sunrise to sunset, Lucy bends sunlight into your Home. Lucy also tells you about energy savings, carbon footprint, health and the natural illumination index of your home through the Solenica app. Lucy will be integrated into the Smart Home so as to switch the lights off when there is sunlight available.
