German architect André Broessel, of Rawlemon's spherical sun-tracking solar energy-generating globe — It concentrates sunlight/moonlight up to times-solar harvesting capabilities 35 percent more efficient than conventional dual-axis photovoltaic designs.
New spray-on solar technology can turn all windows and other exposed surfaces into solar panels. A film of light absorbing meta-nano-particles is sprayed on surfaces like windows to make them capable of trapping the sunlight and converting it to electricity. Perhaps one of the most advanced solar inventions, spray-on films can generate electricity on see-through glass and even exterior walls. However, this technology is still mostly restricted to the lab.
