Spray-On Solar-Power Cells




Imagine a future where solar power can come as readily as spraying out of a can... Open your eyes, because the future is now! Scientists have come up with a way of creating solar cells with a 'paint, whether brushed on or sprayed out of a can. This spray on portable energy source is ultra- portable and can be applied to virtually any surface.

Like paint, the composite can be sprayed onto other materials and used as portable electricity. A sweater coated in the material could power a cell phone or other wireless devices. A hydrogen-powered car painted with the film could potentially convert enough energy into electricity to continually recharge the car's battery.
