Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

I don’t want another phone call
I don’t want another e-mail
Don’t want another letter,
Postcard or photograph

Sick and tired of the time-zones
All I want is little bit of time alone
Just you and me
With a little bit of space between

Don’t care how we get there, long as we get there

I wanna be close so close
I don’t care what that entails
I wanna be, I wanna be close to you

Korra book 3 finale.

I think I forgot how to breathe a few times. Studio Mir did some absolutely awesome, gorgeous work. Thank you whole Korra crew!!!

I like this GIF as the sequel to my last post. I also love how buff Korra looks in that incredible animation. THAT is how she is supposed to look in every shot.

Thank you, Johane! I would also like to give a huge thanks to the Korra crews at Nick in Burbank, and in Seoul at Studio Mir and Studio Reve for a stellar season and finale. And thank you to the fans! Thanks for sticking with this show after the bumpy ride in Book 2, and the hide-and-seek network shenanigans this summer. Keep cursing the Bryke for making you feel the feels and smell the real poop. We’ll be back with Book 4 as soon as possible. Hopefully it won’t be released only on smartwatches or some other inane platform.

Love, Bryan

P.S. My umbrella term “in Burbank” failed to cover all the amazing crew members in greater LA, particularly Jeremy Zuckerman and his epic score, Benjamin Wynn for his sound design maelstrom, Aran Tanchum and Vinny Quisetti for their top-notch foley work, all of our martial arts consultants, and many others in our post production process around town. It takes a village!
