OK everyone, admit it: when the weather outside is
delightful, the last place you want to be is at WORK..
This product will best suite smaller businesses & home offices,
as a large office building might be damn near impossible to
install this sucker on - not to mention, expensive.*
construction would include an aviary-style frame that
encompasses the entire building. Various panels can
automagically be lowered from the framework (usually by the
boss) to simulate crappy weather to the casual observer
inside. The basic principle at play here is keeping the sunlight
to a minimum and diffusing available light into a dull neutral
gray, much like a rainy day.
Workers inside eventually forget that the Weather Filter has
been activated and will stop looking longingly out the
windows, thereby increasing their productivity.
Models include one that can be affixed to the sides of a
high-rise office building and be activated on a single floor if

||But it does make a cracken tornado shelter!
||They'd never do any work, but they'd never want to leave.
||Then you get to charge them rent!!
