Teenager invents £23 solar panel that could be solution to developing world's energy needs ... Made from Human Hair of people with high Mel
A new type of solar panel using human hair could provide the world with cheap, green electricity, believes its teenage inventor. Milan Karki, 18, who comes from a village in rural NEPAL, believes he has found the solution to the developing world's energy needs.

The young inventor says hair is easy to use as a conductor in solar panels and could revolutionise renewable energy.

'I'm trying to produce commercially and distribute to the districts. We've already sent a couple out to the districts to test for feasibility,' he said.

The solar panel, which produces 9 V (18 W) of energy, costs around £23 to make from raw materials.

But if they were mass-produced, Milan says they could be sold for less than half that price, which could make them a quarter of the price of those already on the market.
MELANIN, a pigment that gives hair its COLOUR, is light sensitive and also acts as a type of CONDUCTOR. Because hair is far cheaper than silicon the appliance is less costly.

'I realised that MELANIN was one of the factors in CONVERSION OF ENERGY,' he said.

Half a kilo of hair can be bought for only 16p in NEPAL and lasts a few months, whereas a pack of batteries would cost 50p and last a few nights. People can replace the hair easily themselves, says Milan, meaning his solar panels need little servicing. Three years after first coming up with the idea, Milan says the idea is more important than ever because of the crucial need for renewable energies in the face of finite power sources and global warming.

'Slowly, natural resources are degrading so it is necessary to think about the future," he said.

'One day we will be in a great crisis regarding this fuel so it is a good thing to do today.'This is an easy solution for the crisis we are having today. We have begun the long walk to save the planet.'

Good to know there are still some geniuses out there working on this kind of stuff.
