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.

this is probably my favorite joke from futurama tbh

I love Futurama but I don’t get this what’s the joke

I hope it applies to Aztecs and Mayans too ;)
