Prototype Sony lampshade steals own lightbulb's energy back
Sony's dye-sensitized solar cells will first see life as light: a desk lamp, to be precise.
The Hana-Akari fixture is made up of panels that mimick photosynthesis, storing energy in a low-cost, thin membrane that will be easy to manufacture. Commercial applications are expected to be a "potentially significant contributor
" to the feasibility of renewable energy policies.
No release date was given at the demonstration, which took place at an eco-products conference in Japan this morning.
