A Solar Retina


Check out this little video on Professor Andrew Barron at Rice University’s artificial retina project that turned into a solar cell.  Here’s the video – see if what Kyra Phillips says at the very end cracks you up.  It’s short.

Thanks, Viking M!

  1. Very Neat. If it can be eventually made cheap and durable enough, would be easy to cover a building with sheets of this. I completely over looked the eye bring and obvious solar device, the downside would be the more light it gets the less efficient it works. Presume the Prof has removed that quality from his solar cell/sheet/retina.
