BBC Discovery on swarm robotics inspired by biological systems
One of my current research interests involves hydrogen production by photocatalytic waster splitting and connection to dye sensitized solar cell technologies.
Here are some research articles on the subject:

JCAP at Caltech teaches you how to generate a current using blackberries and solar energy!
Try it out yourself by following these instructional videos:
Here is also a good demo:
Here is PDF from University of Texas Austin of how to make a DSSC from household products:
Here is the original paper by Smestad and Graetzel: GraetzelCell-1998
Together with Sir Richard Friend and Steve Furber, Michael Graetzel was awarded the Millennium Technology Prize of 2010
One of my research interest involves dye sensitized solar cells – a technology for capturing energy from the sun inspired by nature’s photosynthesis
Above is a simple video how how a DSSC works
Here are some articles on the subject:
Below are some articles explaining artificial photosynthesis and dye sensitized solar cells…
