Paper thin solar cells

There was a recent development in the science of solar panels. A new paper thin solar cell was developed by researchers, and although it is still in its preliminary stages, the technology presents a myriad of possibilities and applications. Imagine installing this paper thin solar cell on your cell phone to charge it. Perhaps these paper thin solar cells could be stitched into articles of clothing to charge your devices while you are on the go. One proposed idea was installing these solar cells onto a ships sail in order to power the onboard electronics. Or even installing these cells into the shingles of your house. Whatever this technology is used for it offers us new possibilities for localized energy.
