So my fancy newfangled window blinds got installed in my bedroom today, as can be seen in the pictures below:
I probably should have shot a video of them in action, but I think you get the basic idea.
They work kind of like a conveyor belt, allowing you to let light through or block it out completely, all the while looking cool.
They sort of remind me of the panels used to simulate night and day on Ringworld, so they appeal to the geek in me.
The name of the product line is Allure, and the color of the fabric is Caramel Entice, thus marking the only context in which the words “allure” and “entice” are likely to be used when referring to my bedroom.
Somewhere along the line I’ll be posting more details of my trip to Michigan, but that’s not going to happen right now.
Oh, and on a totally unrelated note, congratulations to Scott and Stacy.
