New robots build prototype solar cells in 30 minutes, then evaluate their own work

from PopSci:

One squat multitasking robot can build semiconductors for solar cells on six-inch-square plates of glass, plastic or flexible metals in just over half an hour.

Six of these tireless mechanical workers, chugging away at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Colorado, will allow private companies to come rapidly prototype and test their newest formulas for creating solar cells.

    man,you always give us hope in making our lifes goes to infinity.max ability,max utilization,

  2. Well, I think tech will eventually lead to our demise, but we can’t help it. It is our curse and blessing.

    Here’s some food for thought.

    If knowledge is power, and absolute power corrupts absolutely, then absolute knowledge also corrupts absolutely.

    Absolute knowledge is by definition corrupted with evil, because to truly know everything one must know of everything good and everything evil.

    Ignorance is innocence, but where’s the fun in that?

    peace
