Blinds could soon be powering your home as well as offering shade! Now, SolarGaps have developed ‘smart blinds’ that track sun-movement (via app) which will reduce the energy consumption of a building (by as much as 70%) and cut financial costs too!

The blinds’ system was developed by a Ukrainian inventor Yevgen Erik. They’re extremely efficient (which according to the company can run three MacBooks or 30 LEDs with just 10 square feet!). It has been made simple enough for homeowners to install and can work in a variety of climates.
