interesting thread on how to track light exposure. By collecting light data one can search for correlations with mood, stress, weight, activity and sleep. This could be helpful for several different purposes. Time Spent Outside
Vitamin D Exposure
Light Color Temperature (circadian rhythms)
The following hardware and apps were suggested for light tracking:
SunSprite – Personal Light Tracker
