A Eureka Moment That May Let You Paint Your House Infra Red

How do you fancy painting your house to generate your own electricity? Sound a bit far-fetched?

Well, human ingenuity never ceases to amaze, even if prompted by a chance discovery. Research into solar nanotechnology now suggests that within 10 years or so you may be able paint your house with pigments containing 'Quantum Dots' which will convert the sun's infra red emissions directly into electricity. Because this technology works on the infra red spectrum, it remains efficient even during cloudy and overcast weather.

See Solar Paint at bookofjoe for the full story.
