See-Through Solar Cells Could Give Your iPad Eternal Life

Tired of being tethered to the outlet or waiting for your solar charger? With all the neat things our mobile devices can do, waiting around to refill the battery seems, well, archaic. A young startup called Ubiquitous Energy aims to eliminate this problem by pioneering completely transparent solar cells that could be added in layers on top of the screen of your iPad to harvest ambient light.

Headed by Miles C. Barr, the company made waves last year when he unveiled an approach to the fabrication of solar cells that could allow them to be printed directly on common materials like paper and textiles. While not the first to develop clear solar cells, many believe Barr’s newest idea could be a game changer for passive energy.
