A fascinating start. Solar efficiency is only 1% now for these paint-on cells, while a typical cell is 10-15% they say.

How cool will it be to paint youur whole house with this stuff? Of course, once it gets dumbed down to pass EPA, OSHA, and Darwin tests, it may consume more energy than it creates...
