You thought solar power was good? How about power from the moon?

We could soon live in a world where we harness power from the... moon

I have to admit, I rent a house that is solar-powered and it is amazing. My bills dropped from around $1600 per quarter to around $30 and I could not be any happier, unless I was pulling power from the moon.




This is exactly what André Broessel, a European architect and engineer has built. A weatherproof harvesting system that can accept power from multiple light sources, including our moon. The liquid-filled glass sphere design not only looks great, but it is able to turn light into heat, meaning it can harvest the rays of our sun, and our moon.




The sphere is made to me mounted on buildings individually, or in arrays, with a computerized control system taking control, tracking available illumination in the day, but it can also track the moon and harness its energy. I'd like one, now.
