Everlasting Camera

 An image taken by the camera

Just saw this article about a camera that has been designed that uses solar energy to power itself, meaning it can theoretically run forever. I think it’s pretty cool and have already been thinking of useful and interesting ways that it could be used. Although the resolution at present is quite poor, once the amount of power that can be harnessed increases as solar technology improves, the camera may be able to take decent quality pictures. This could be a great security device, or even just as a historical documenting camera that can be placed outside and take pictures of an area over a long period of time, many years, allowing people to have a time lapse of their home town or city as it develops.

An exaggerated mockup of what this camera might look like (no pictures released yet of it from the researchers)
