Stanford University creates peel-and-stick solar cells

The dream of sticking solar strips into our mobile devices to recharge its batteries could one day be here. Researchers from Stanford University were able to create the world's first peel-and-stick thin-film solar cells. The original concept was to develop decal-like solar panels that can be peeled off like band-aids and stuck to virtually any surface. (more…) By Ubergizmo.
