In cooperation with the Industrial Technology Center of Fukui Prefecture, Japan, Sphelar Power Corporation has successfully prototyped an energy-harvesting textile where spherical solar cells are interweaved.

This result was delivered from an interdisciplinary collaboration between Sphelar Power, which uniquely developed 3-dimensional light capturing Sphelar cells, and the Industrial Technology Center of Fukui Prefecture which serves as innovative R&D hub for local textile industries. First, 1.2mm Sphelar cells are aligned and connected as a thread which is then woven as an energy-generating mat. The photovoltaic modules obtained can be not only flexible, but also expandable just like textile.

One of the benefits of the Sphelar cell is that it can receive sunlight more effectively and more uniformly than conventional flat solar cells. Hence the solar cells are less dependent on the angle of incoming light. Each spherical solar cell designed as a multi-layered bead features two electrodes on opposite sides.

This structure enables 3-dimensional light capture and extends the device's application range, from horizontal installations to integration into curved surfaces and 3-dimensional solar modules.

  • The [url=]vibram five fingers outlet uk[/url] is aimed primarily at runners of any distance who are looking for that great barefoot minimalistic feel and the benefits it can provide. However it is also commonly used in gym and training environments. The V-Run is very lightweight which also makes it a great travel companion. The V-Run has a very lightweight flexible sole and excellent ventilation throughout its synthetic upper. The V-Run also has a nice secure feel from the elasticated neck around the ankle and the integrated speed lace system.

    "The brilliant All New for 2017 [url=]vibram five fingers cheap uk[/url] V-Trail is being extensively tested here at Barefoot Junkie. The V-Trail is an evolution of a Barefoot Junkie favourite the Spyridon MR and a great evolution at that. We have noticed extra comfort in the ball area of the foot and fantastic feel from the Flex Grip design from ball of the foot to the toes. They give a great barefoot non restrictive feel and couple that with the lovely new padded neck area around the ankle area, the V-Trail are proving to be another great step forward in the Vibram Fivefingers range."
