Aussie scientists print flexible solar panels

Aren't they clever. They are A3 size and can be printed at home eventually and will lead to bigger and better things in the solar energy business. What do you reckon.

Pretty cool. Only lasts six months at the moment... bummer.

Great news. Think my family in South Africa would be interested. Particularly since solar heating systems are now required for new buildings. Guess the currently suppliers who were making mega bucks would be quite concerned right now, looking for all kinds of reasons why the new "invention" may not be the "real thing".

A very good news for people on the remote area. I hope this technology can overcome many problems especially the cost.

Jokes aside, it looks really good. I hope it's gonna develop in the next years.
