New Solar Power for Buildings

From a New Scientist article:

bq. Buildings of the future could be “clothed” in a flexible, power-generating material that looks like denim. The Canadian company developing the material says it can be draped over just about any shape – greatly expanding the number of places where solar power can be generated.

Cool; another Canadian company working on alternative power systems. This particular material has about the same efficieny as regular solar panels. However, it apparently looks something like denim, which makes for _interesting_ building designs…
