Researchers from the University of Cambridge have developed cheap organic solar cells. Made out of organic plastic, the cells have endless possibilities for commercial use, which has been an obstacle in regards to solar production for some time now.

These cheap organic solar cells can be implemented into pretty much any plastic object. Not only that, they can be introduced into third world countries, helping them transform their poorer states into something better and, let's face it, livable. Kudos, Cambridge, for this promising development.
