Wysips – what you see is photovoltaic surface

The concept was developed from research on lenticular images, which show different pictures depending on the observer’s position. Using micro-lenses and two interlaced flat images, the viewer sees either image alternately depending on the angle of vision.

For instance, these interlaced images are used to create 3D effects and animations. Some 3D screens use these lenticular technologies. As a company, WYSIPS is developing these processes and the related optical phenomena to provide applications in the solar energy field. Thanks to its research group, Wysips is determined to offer breakthrough technologies especially by combining lenses with cutting edge solar solutions.
Depending on the observer’s position, the eye sees 2 different images, thus creating an optical effect. This process is called a hologram and it’s the principal behind Wysips® technology.

WYSIPS Technology harnesses optics:

When viewing this image, the inventor, an optics enthusiast, asked the question: “what if I used these lenses to concentrate light onto thin strips of photovoltaic material located between the image strips? From one angle we’d see the image and from another, the solar panel”. This is how wysips technology came into being, and this is why images are now able to produce energy. Look at your environment and imagine all the surfaces around you as potential energy sources!

WYSIPS Technology does not alter the structure of the surface:

WYSIPS Technology consists of a flexible transparent lenticular film onto which extremely thin photovoltaic strips (in the region of one micron) have been deposited, thereby creating a flexible photovoltaic film which, from some angles, becomes totally transparent. Bonded to an LCD screen, for instance, it transforms the digital image without altering its definition or brilliance.
