As the sun went down last Friday, nerdiness-fuelled distraction at work came in the form of blinding intensity of the reflection coming off Auckland’s newest glass-wrapped skyscraper.
It was really bright. A colleague pulls out an iPhone and fires up their light-intensity-app.
I get home and have this text conversation:
Glass optical and thermal properties are something I get involved with at work, and so I resolved to try and use theory to get the same illuminance as the iPhone sensor was indicating.
