That would be pretty sweet to have a bunch of glowing green cylinders that produce fresh air.I would put one in every room,maybe even two ,then it would look like alien fuel cells are strewn about alien ...wich wouldnt be too far from the truth.

if each one converts as much CO2 as it says it does you would have to figure on a way of getting fresh CO2 layden air to the units or they might start dimming down.

It is really vague as there is not much information on the lamp itself.I would presume that you would have to remove gas and plant mass as it grew since it is just a plant after all?

If you read past the bottom of the article you can see many replies about the possible conversions taking place but your right in the fact that there are alot of questions Vs answers wich makes this article kinda cloudy,if I see more info I will post it up.
