A Thing of Beauty....

More hope for the future, as an Australian research team develops solar cells which can be printed onto flexible sheets at a rate of ten meters a minute. According to a statement:
They are able to print directly onto walls and windows using an opaque solar film and claim that they can line a skyscraper with panels, making it totally electrically self sufficient.

The scientists from CSIRO, the University of Melbourne and Monash University have spent more than seven years perfecting a means of printing solar panels onto plastic, resulting in self-powered electronics such as smartphones and laptops.

Just think, with technology like this, we can stop global oil wars, the funneling of petrol dollars into terrorist groups, and address global warming. What's not to like?
