This new Solar tech could turn any surface into a solar panel. It is lightweight, flexible, you can attach it to any surface you want.

The prototype is lab designed and made from something called "perovskites": A material that is cheaper and more flexible than silicon.

Because they can make semi-transparent cells, you can put it in the applications that you weren't able to put regular silicon-based solar cells.  

It even works with artificial sources of light and can be attached to windows.  The applications could be endless.
