Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

"Stay with the pain, don’t shut this out.  Without pain, without sacrifice we would have nothing. This is your pain. This is your burning hand its right here. This is the greatest moment of your life and you’re off somewhere missing it. First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that one day you are going to die.  Its only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything." 

Fight Club (1999) Directed by David Fincher
