Utilizing Emerging Technologies to Capture Solar Power via Paint

Researchers at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) have discovered a compound that can be integrated into paint which is capable of generating seemingly unlimited energy. The compound works by utilizing existing water vapor in the atmosphere and converting it into its components of hydrogen and oxygen, hydrogen being the cleanest source of energy available. Researchers commented that this technology can be implemented in any location, especially those with arid climates and limited access to water. Professor Kourosh Kalantar-zadeh noted that the paint could be applied to electric vehicles and exploited to continuously provide power instead of stopping at stations to recharge.
