No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Very interesting indeed, and with oil on it's way out, this looks like a viable energy source to me along side wind and water power... :)

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

the system can duplicate the water splitting reaction that occurs during photosynthesis


Hmmmm. Photosynthesis obtains oxygen (and sugar) from Carbon Dioxide and water

The article doesn't suggest where the sugar goes, (alcohol maybe with a bit of yeast ?)

Whilst it all looks good on paper, I cannot help feeling that a mechanical process using solar panels ( an energy intensive product to manufacture), cannot begin to compete with the efficiency of plants.

Nice idea if it works, but this one isn't theoretical and already under construction
