Think solar power isn't sexy, think again. André Broessel from Barcelona has united sleek architecture with intelligent scientific design as an answer to the ‘ugliness’ of renewable energy devices with the “ß torics” system. This spherical ball of glass uses a simple optical system to concentrate sunlight up to 10,000 times making it 35% more efficient than flat panel tracking models. The tracking device means it can be placed on inclined surfaces, curtain walls, roofs or anywhere really.
