  2. Very interesting. The labor cost of making a small solar panel is higher
    than that of a large solar panel.

    You can buy individual solar cells (not panels, the cells the panels are
    made of) at very low costs from china:
    http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/high-efficiency-156mmx156mm-6-2BB-3BB_1095430687.html

    Soldering entire cells together and mounting them is the labor part. But
    small panels use /part/ of many cells to get to a usable voltage with less
    surface area (and less current) and so you ALSO have to break the cell
    apart, and do more soldering.

    These guys came up with a better, automated, way to do all that. Very
    interesting.

  4. totally misleading video title…

    its a snapping / combining machine, no printer

  5. Independent “Garage-type” Inventors Created An Automated Device That Helps
    To Produce Thousands Of MICRO-SOLAR PANELS By Automatically And Precisely
    Cutting Bigger Ones. This device Will Dramatically Bring Down Their Cost.
    They Intend To Make It Open-Source For Further Collective Improvements.

    ( And the capitalist liars use to say that people only use creativity for
    “selfish reasons” [ profit]. )

    ( The title of the video has a mistake. It does not use printing. )

  6. , i thought you were going to make the entire solar panel… I thought he
    was going to manufacture the panels themselves ..

  9. this could pay for itself if you want do make a DIY system for your
    personal or home use.

  10. You go guys!
    Its great to see younginz doing stuff like this.
    DIY is not dead!

  12. The title is misleading, this is not about printing anything. This is
    about assembling small solar panels.

  22. So if you smuggled this into US from Hong Kong as you say, you’ve got
    nothing to patent as you’ve stolen someone else’s design? Whats special
    about what you’re doing?

    learn more about solar cells…

    By Solar Power Gadget on Jan 1, 2015

  30. probably should’ve mentioned that a thin layer of dust drops solar cell
    efficiency by 30%-50%. Converting solar energy into heat is a much more
    efficient method of getting free energy from the sun.
