New solar cells developed by Massey University don't need direct sunlight to operate and use a patented range of dyes that can be impregnated in roofs, window glass and eventually even clothing to produce power.

This means teenagers could one day be wearing jackets that will recharge their equivalents of cellphones, iPods and other battery- driven devices.

The breakthrough is a development of the university's Nanomaterials Research Centre and has attracted world-wide interest already - particularly from Australia and Japan.

I believe truth and principle do matter. If you have to sacrifice them to get the results you want, then the results aren't worth it.

heck, paint a car in it and you won't need a battery
I was never here, you were never here, this conversation never took place, and you most certainly did not see me.

Paint your house and fence and if its durable enough to drive on your driveway.   I wonder how it works to give colour to your shingles?
