Demonstration of a paintable photovoltaic system. The paint in the demonstration captures light and sends it to a small photocell that is attached to the glass background. A small fan indicates how much energy is generated. By applying more paint, the fan starts to turn quicker.
The paint can be used on thick transparent backgrounds like glass. Small quantities of energy can be generated in this way.
