MIT Prints Durable Solar Cells On Paper

Okay, so it might sound a bit counter intuitive to print solar cells on paper. After all, isn’t the whole purpose of solar technology so we can print less paper and save more trees from being destroyed?

Well maybe so, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find other applications for solar celled paper. MIT has been working on this project since last year, and the findings are quite incredible. The paper itself is an ordinary sheet of paper with a fine layer of colored rectangles, that, when connected to a few designated wires, generates solar electricity.

Does The Future Of Elegant Tablets Give Stiff Competition For Apple?

I remember when tablets first came out years back, I would talk about them to people who’ve never heard of the term, and I would explain it as a digital notepad. It’s really something to see how tablets have evolved since birth.

PayPal Rolls Out Phone-To-Phone NFC Support

As the months continue on, NFC becomes less of a hearsay and more of a reality, and PayPal appears to be one of the founding fathers leading the movement. Although Google took a major leap forward when it said that it will support NFC payments, we have yet to see a full rollout on Android devices.

PayPal has just announced something a bit more interesting however, it now supports NFC payments for Android through phone-to-phone contacts. With this system, the need for a contactless reader to read the mobile payment is not needed.
