Solar Lily Pads

May 15, 2008


In a stunning example of biomimicry, Scottish architecture firm ZM Architecture have come up with a brilliant scheme to provide more solar power to the city of Glasgow, Solar Lily Pads!
The firm said the design of the lilypads was “inspired by nature” and they could be tethered to the river bed. Integrated motors would then rotate the discs to follow the sun for maximum output.
