The backlight in laptops consumes a lot of power and is often not bright enough to compete with sunlight when viewed outdoors.
When inside, the traditional backlight is used. However, when used outside, the top light-cylinder guide is used to gather sunlight and funnel that into the light guide, creating tremendous backlight illumination.
This invention makes your laptop usable outdoors and saves precious battery power simultaneously.
