Better Drinking Through Technology

Cold beer without refrigeration or coolers!

Oh, and the technology might have a few other useful applications as well:
...Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute are working on Active Building Envelope technology, a new science that shrinks solar panels to micrometer-thin sizes, allowing them to be stuck on walls, roofs, or, yes, beer bottles. Less exciting but perhaps more practical uses for the tech could potentially be replacing climate-control systems, such as air conditioning, with thin solar strips on all the windows in an office building. ...

Where would technology be, without brew and babes to light the way?
