Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has 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 clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

So here’s some concept work for Gaman which you can view in hi-res here.

For those of you who missed it, in the coming months I’ll be kickstarting a manga called CENTURION (technically doujinshi for now since I don’t have a publisher yet) (thank you for the info phantonhives) in hopes of being able to hire long-term assistants for a multi-volume series with a fine level of detail and polish. The kickstarter will launch along with the first chapter (around 40 pages) that I’ll be funding myself for now so I have something nice to showcase during the start of the actual crowdfunding. 

I cannot divulge too much about the plot yet because I want it to be a really big surprise, but the setting will be a post-apocalyptic neon-cityscape and it will contain sci-fi elements. It’ll be pretty action-oriented with a lot of psychological and dark themes, and aimed for a mature +17 audience. 

As a sidenote, I will be also taking the opportunity to create a cast of characters that are not only intricately planned out but also pretty LGBT+ inclusive, with the main character presented above being canonically bisexual, as well as a diverse supporting cast. Representation is a subject I’d like to fully grasp in the making of this.

I’ll be posting more concepts and updates in the next few months, so stay tuned for that. :> I’m very excited to share a story I’ve had on paper for a year now and it’s extremely hard to keep all the details to myself but I hope you’ll read the first chapter when it first launches.
