Scientists invent thin-film silicon solar cells which can be wrapped around something as small as a pencil.
Man, solar energy’s getting crazy. Two months ago it was “You can make solar cells in a pizza oven with an inkjet printer and some nail polish,” and today it’s “wrap solar cells around a pencil.” What’s tomorrow? Spray-can solar cells?
Hey, did you know that all TD Green Machines are now run on Bullfrog power?
Chew on THAT!
You know what I think the next step to solar panels should be?
Windows. Actual replacement of windows. Imagine, buses and cars with solar panels for windows. Combine that with the electric car and that other new technology from a few months ago where you can start storing the energy and boom.
Fantastic! Solar powered pencils!
It is amazing what technology can do. On a separate note of technology’s awesomeness, they found a 9,000 square meter pyramid buried in the middle of a Peruvian desert… with satellite imaging!
