    Paint your house with electricity

    http://news.nationalgeographic.com/n...arplastic.html

    Harnesses infra-red instead of just visible light as current solar cells do, so in theory you could aim it at a steaming pile of shit and charge your cellphone.
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    It would be awesome to get something like that working

    I wonder though.. Wouldnt this work as insulation from heat since it would convert it to energy? 2 birds with 1 stone for the desert

    I was thinking use hot water panels filled with glycol to absorb the heat during the day while the electric panels face the sun and make energy from that, then invert them at night and use the infrared from the heated liquid stored during the day in the hot water panels. Have to check with my local alt. energy genius to find out.
