Solar Powered Everything?

The Next Green AND Solar Building?
An interesting story about solar power gives an exciting glance at the future of solar panels, which fundamentally changes the preconceived notion that solar panels need to lie flat, spread out over acres of space, and require hours of sunlight in order to be most efficient.  The new concept allows for solar panels to be built in just about any size or shape, providing potential applications to structures, towers, and even public artworks!  Could this mean that in the future, ALL structures will be made to produce solar power?  Could it mean that existing solar panel eyesores could become works of arts and spread throughout a city?  The possibilities are exciting!
