Researchers at UCLA have a new idea on how to use LCD panels, and it has nothing to do with video. Instead, they've devised a technology allowing screens to absorb and convert various light sources (like its own) into energy.
By bringing the field of photovoltaics into medicine, researchers hope to create a far more precise method of drug delivery for fighting cancer. That's right - this cancer cure involves tiny photovoltaic particles like the kind used in solar cells.
While it may look like some sort of metallic snowstorm, this is actually an assortment of tiny photovoltaic cells, each less than a millimeter across. And these minuscule cells could be the versatile, flexible future of solar power.
