What if we Invested in this Boy and his Technology, do you think it would be worth it, to keep us mining for years to come with our All Consuming Power Rigs?

"In his project, 'A Highly-Efficient 3-Dimensional Nanotube Solar Cell for Visible and UV Light,' William invented a novel solar panel that enables light absorption from visible to ultraviolet light. He designed carbon nanotubes to overcome the barriers of electron movement, doubling the light-electricity conversion efficiency. William also developed a model for solar towers and a computer program to simulate and optimize the tower parameters. His optimized design provides 500 times more light absorption than commercially-available solar cells and nine times more than the cutting-edge, three dimensional solar cell."

Sounds pretty radical to me...

If it were possible, it would mean much greater things for the world than free bitcoin mining Tongue

This 500-times is not efficiency increase. Todays best solar cells are very efficient - about 40%. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PVeff(rev110408U).jpg There is no room for efficiency even 9 times bigger.
So, no revolution. More likely just misinterpretation.
