When it comes to technology, "first," "better" and "stretchier," sets some innovations apart from others. This week, we have the world's first solar power plant (seen here), the most efficient solar cell, the first thought-controlled bionic leg and the first transparent, stretchable organic light-emitting diode, which could lead to stretchy phones. Have a look.
The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System in California’s Mojave Desert just came online. Once it's up and running fully, it will generate 392 Megawatts of renewable energy, enough to power 140,000 homes and reduce carbon emissions by 400,000 tons per year.
