MIT Scientists Create Artificial Solar Leaf That Can Power Homes

Can we send a few of these "leaves" to the areas of the world who's children do not have access to "mobile internet" to power their microwave towers? Tablet style computers are cheap enough now to mass produce (search Ford focus solar assisted plant using robotics to manufacture electric car) and send to the world's poorest most remote child. Online education is already available at every level, incuding the world's most prestigeous universities (via 2 way multimedia). Paper books are a thing of the past (thank goodness, now those that are motivated, and understand the long term value, can afford them). They are being translated into every language. This helps. On the web site, a sidebar allows you to choose which language you want to view the instructions in. http://www.bigshotcamera.org/index.php/world http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=bigshot-do-it-yourse...
