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.
