Artificial Leaf, the Future of Energy

Researchers at MIT have recently developed a tri-metal-coated silicon chip, that when placed in a glass of water and exposed to light changes good old H2O into H2 and O2 at a 5% efficiency. Considering the shear volume of energy that is emitted from the sun on a daily basis, any efficiency level is a giant step forward for the future of hydrogen fuel production.
