This is pretty cool:

Picture and information from this post on Gizmodo:

. . . light-collecting panels which you install on your roof, allowing them to feed a remote part of your house with the purest of natural light. The Skyport system uses SunWire—"light transporting cable" (read: fiber optics)—to bring sunlight to its connected "luminaries". Björks, as they're called, are specially designed to generate a light output of up to 4,000 lux, presumably on a clear day. The SunWire allows for you to distribute sunlight up to three stories down into a building and the Björks come in three different shapes, letting you maximize light output for a particular room's layout.

No pricing or availability out yet, but certainly cooler than the now-low-tech-seeming Sun Pipe.
