This video is really cool! It’s about a new emerging technology and the effect it could have on solar power. I’ve believed for a while that nanotechnology could save us from such threats as Peak Oil and Climate Change. Its been described as the next industrial revolution (if not a post-industrial revolution!) As you can imagine, nanotech is something the likes of Ray Kurzweil is a big fan of.
The real interesting thing about this application of nanotech is that it can apparently create solar panels that can utilise the full amount of natural sunlight captured and convert it to electrical power. Apparently, this is substantially more than what present solar panels can do. Enough, in fact, to solve the world’s energy problems (?)
What do you think? Watch the video and let me know!
