High-Voltage Solar Cell Makes Flexible Solar Panels for Consumer Electronics More Feasible

  A new, relatively high-voltage solar cell that can charge the li-ion batteries of portable electronics such as e-book readers and cellphones in partial shade has been created by the University of Warwick and Molecular Solar. This type of solar cell is called an organic solar cell, plastic solar cell, or organic photovoltaic cell (OPV). Professor

Next-Gen Energy Storage & Solar Cells to Get Boost from Nano-Flowers

  Nano-flowers, newly created structures composed of germanium sulfide (GeS), have the potential to open the door to next-generation solar cells and energy storage devices. These ‘flowers’, created by researchers from North Carolina State University out of a semiconducting material, feature an enormous surface area, thanks to being covered in many extremely thin petals. “Creating

Black Silicon Solar Cells Get Efficiency Boosts (Two of Them)

  Here are two recent news stories on black silicon solar cells getting efficiency boosts from German and US scientists, courtesy Solar Love: Black Silicon Solar Cell Efficiency Doubled While conventional solar cells can absorb a good portion of the Sun’s light, they completely miss the boat on getting anything from the infrared spectrum. But black

Visibelt — LED Belt For Cyclists, Runners, Pedestrians

  I love the way this attention-getting, eye-catching, visibelt for cyclists, runners, pedestrians, and any night-time traveler is made of energy-efficient LED lights; spinning out from one’s body like an aura. I want one. It would go great with an actual “Aura” system on my wheels when biking at night. This visibelt will bring bright notice of me or you as the

Cardboard Bike For $9-12 Can Hold 485-lb Person (Kids Bike Costs $5)

  The Alfa weighs just 20lbs, yet supports riders up to 24 times its weight. It’s mostly cardboard and 100% recycled materials. It uses a belt-driven pedal system that makes it maintenance free. And, maybe best of all, it’s projected to be manufactured at about $9 to $12 per unit (and just $5 for a kids version), making

#1 Reason to Bike for Transportation that Doesn't Get Talked About Enough (& 14 Awesome Bicycling Videos)

  There are tons of reasons to bike. Tons. It’s ridiculously, insanely good for helping preserve a livable planet. It’s ridiculously, insanely good for our health. And it’s ridiculously, insanely efficient (saves a ton of money for individuals, cities, counties, states, and countries). But there’s one more key reason that is often overlooked: it’s ridiculously,

Failure

  This: http://vimeo.com/19991109 What a great video by the ever thoughtful Derek Sivers (via Life of Light). And another nice post from Life of Light that sort of goes with it: If you have a fault, consider well before you criticize another. Consider well before you think in a bad way about a friend, family member, spouse,

"The Republicans Are the Problem," Centrist, or Even Conservative, Political Scientists Write

  If you follow the Washington Post, or are a political junkie, perhaps you’ve already seen this story, but if you haven’t, it’s a must read. A couple of moderate, centrist, or even conservative political scientists recently tore into the extremist Republican leadership of today, spelling out the simple fact that Congress and our whole

Human Undergoes Horrendous Animal Testing for Animal Rights

  I’m not going to lie, I didn’t watch the video. The opening picture of the Feelgood Style post on this matter was enough for me: Here’s the full Feelgood Style post, Human Undergoes Animal Testing for Animal Rights: Performance artist Jacqueline Traides agreed to publicly undergo animal testing techniques to show what animals endure in
