Yeah, they're called light pipes and my parents had one installed 12 years ago.

Aren't those called "windows"?

My God, light through fiber optics. If only someone had thought of this before. All these years we've been dragging lengths of it behind our cars, tying up our dogs with it, and yes, sometimes whipping some sense into our children with it, and we could have been using it to convey light.

I'm starting to hate the word "hybrid." As soon as someone pairs it with "ultra," I'm track down an ad exec and hit him on the nose with a soggy noodle.

More Ultra-Hybrid after the jump!

Screw the rest of you guys, I'm with Logweasel. This is cool.

Damn right it's cool...and it's been available since fiber-optics have been around.
