Worried about the state of our environment? Well fear no more! Modern science (refered to as "witchcraft" by some) has developed the "artificial leaf".

The device is actually a small solar cell, about the size of a playing card (a common natural plant leaf), which operated on the natural principle of photosynthesis in plants, i.e. creating energy from abundant natural elements, i.e. water and sunlight.


Seemed interesting, so I though I'd share if with the Pit.
I'm just like the Jonas Brothers,

I'm no longer relevant and write mediocre music.

Cool idea, although I'm wondering how much energy and resources are involved in making one of these.

Anyone else notice there's a bunch of artificial shit being made recently?

Recently, I've heard of artificial sperm, hearts, and now leafs. Wtf science

lol I don't think you know what you're talking about?
photosynthesis takes solar energy and converts it into chemical/organic energy.

Photosynthesis fixes carbon to form ATP. The only form of energy it really produces that could possibly used for technological needs would be the ejected electrons from photosystem one and two which usually go onto reduce NADP. If we could capture those then you could set up a circuit, I guess.

Mitochondria would be better for generating energy, polarised membranes galore.

Yeah, I failed at Bio. This was stuff from like fourth grade that I was saying.
I guess, I am the fool.

You're not a fool, you're basically correct, it's just 'energy' is a word that's flung around as though it's a universal medium, and as though any form of naturally-produced energy will nurse baby seals back to life and make pandas hornier than a young couple on prom night.

I think we have a winner!

I dunno, last time I smoked some artificially sweetened leaf, my friend turned into a grizzly bear and tried to sell me cocaine.
