    Default Solar Power - Pretty Cool

    How cool would it be to have your house powered with solar cells that tinted your windows?


    CHICAGO (Reuters) - U.S. researchers have found a way to make efficient silicon-based solar cells that are flexible enough to be rolled around a pencil and transparent enough to be used to tint windows on buildings or cars.

    And what do you bet that we never use it? I've been hearing the same old song and dance for 25 years now: "The technology just isn't there yet."
