Using something called ‘dye-sensitized solar cells’, Sony’s latest prototype material captures the light’s energy and recycles it for later use.  In theory the material is probably translucent enough to be attached to a lamp shade, which in turn means redundant recycling – it would partially power itself.  Apparently, dye-sensitized solar cells are cheaper to produce than your standard solar cells.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
