New solar technology demonstrated on a Paper Airplane

Spotted on the LA Times Blog was this snippet about a new solar technology development, resulting in a printed ‘panel’ which can be folded up into a paper aeroplane and still generate electricity.

It’s obviously early days but if the problem of actual output efficiency can be cracked, then the long term benefits are very exciting.

Whilst solar technology has been around for years, it’s only just this past year that we’re starting to see homes and businesses really showing an interest / having their own solar panel systems installed.

The LA Times story just goes to show that technology development never sleeps…
