Researchers have developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a flat, clear surface.

Keep your eye out for these team-hindering habits.
Daniel Cheah's profile photo
The article missed 1 habit that we hear from some candidates we interviewed. No.6  habit is the bosses who take full credit when the team / individuals over-performs and blames them if he is major part of the failure. Can you feel the finger-pointing?  We need stronger team-players, not Superman.  We all live in a collaborative & connected digital workplace. Be good to your team!
