sunglasses that produce clean electricity
Dye based solar cells use nanotechnology to add a thin layer of inexpensive solar cells that are highly efficient for their size. The sunglasses work in the same way a traditional pair would, by blocking out harmful UV although turning the blocked rays into usable electricity, the sunglasses are transparent so you can still see out of them. sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
Even though I think the design of the solar sunglasses are ugly, nonetheless this is a great example of the possibilities of solar power. Imagine using the dye based solar cells to create clothing that can generate electricity, the applications of these dye based solar cells are endless, wouldn’t you agree?
