A sphere tracking and concentrating sun rays. I thought it was very interesting but at €6,000.00 the unit I think that the same power can be achieve with traditional solar panels for much less. Anyway look promising.

Edit :
There was an Indiegogo campaign to fund the project: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/rawlemon-solar-devices#/
They failed to produce the device. There's some news on their site (http://www.rawlemon.com/blogs/news) but the whole look like as a scam.
