Two summers a year, the Perovskite Orchestra performed Vivaldi. Audiences sat entranced by solar powered instruments that played themselves.

Research teams all over the world are experimenting on a new solar cell made from perovskite. The fastest advancing solar technology to date, perovskite is exceptionally stable against air exposure, sunlight, heat, and water and could be a great candidate for solar windows. Alex Massey contemplates other uses for perovskite in this story…. what if we began to use it to power other objects… like robotic instruments?
