A research team at the University of Notre Dame has developed a solar “paint” that is cheap to mass-produce and would look just like regular house paint when applied to the exterior of a home. While the team is still working on making the paint significantly more efficient, the idea is an exciting leap forward for everyone who want to use solar power but doesn’t want to bolt those unsightly panels to the top of their home…
Outdoor Solar Shower: 2 black painted 5gal buckets w/lids, connected together w/plumbing pie/fittings, attached to a shower head w/cutoff. For easier fillups, cut hole in one lid to insert section of garden hose in it, with hose connecter on ground for garden hose hookup.
"Krylon Glowz. Glow-in-the-dark paint that recharges with exposure to light." I want to try a paint like this on smooth, large river rocks to create a "lighted" pathway in my garden, highlight landscaping features. I am also playing with the idea of painting recycled bottles and hang them along my fence. Free lights, if it works as promised :-)
