Latest Invention: System that Powers Devices Using Fluorescent Lights' Illumination


If you like this invention you can vote for it here.Solaroad Technologies Group, LLC has recently presented its latest invention called CubeTube, which represents an indoor photovoltaic electricity generator that collects the light coming from the fluorescent lights in the office and transforms it into electricity to power computer workstations.

The user can easily clip the CubeTube to walls, desktops and windowsills. Because the device has a cylindrical shape it can collect light that comes from different angles. To get power from the CubeTube it is necessary to plug an electrical device into the base of Solaroad's latest invention. When the system runs out of energy it automatically switches the standard power grid.

The company says that its latest invention is inexpensive, easy to install and pays for itself rather quickly in electrical savings. Currently, however, there's no word on the price but it is known that the CubeTube will be released in 2011.
