My eyes are burning


Hey. This page is more than two years old! The content here is probably outdated, so bear that in mind. If this post is part of a series, there may be a more recent post that supersedes this one.

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.

The reflection.

I get home and have this text conversation:

Oh damn you Mr Man-with-Luxometer.

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.
