Solar Threads Can Turn Fabric Into Power Generators

Ideal Star, a Tokyo based company, has come up with a rather interesting development, specifically a way to infuse threads with solar cells, and this method actually coats the threads, so it’s claimed that there is no need for expensive equipment to manufacture it.

Looking to the future, solar technology is certainly going to be very important, so let’s keep an eye on this.
