Glass pyramid solar panels save energy without looking ugly

Solar panels are generally big, ugly things that you stick on a building not for beautification purposes, but for ecological purposes. Well, these glass pyramid solar cells help you out on both fronts.

Developed by the Center for Architecture Science and Ecology, the system is comprised of pyramid-shaped glass receptors that follow the sunlight throughout the day, focusing the light down on a small solar cell at the center of each pyramid. Not only are they smart and efficient, but they're damned handsome as well. You can't argue with that combo, can you?
