More Efficient Solar Power Invention O' The Week

It seems like these keep coming up and yet none of them have really cracked the “more cost-effective than oil” nut yet. Still, one can keep hoping, right? And this seems cool (or rather, very hot!):

WANT MORE SOLAR! Heck, I’d like to have a solar concentrator on my roof… though in Seattle it’s kind of pointless…

The future of solar has to be bioelectric, based on photosynthesis. 2 billion years of evolution can’t be that wrong, and we’re getting to the point where we can’t just make any ole’ rare earth element contraption that we want without dramatically limiting the amount that can be produced.

High efficiency solar plus cheap high density storage is what I’m waiting for!

LOL cesium.

Wait until it rains.
