Ianmc,

I looked at the website and all I could see was a flying saucer waiting for human sacrifice

Wombat ,
Looks like a great idea to me . Packs up nice and neat into a large stack -a - box , perfect for lunch , but maybe you would need to track the sun if it was a thick steak . Not sooo good for those early breakfasts and dinners after sundown , but perhaps you could then swap over to the larger starlight collector .
A great bit of gear and up in the league of the two ideas I am developing at present . The "off peak gas hot water system " and the "reverse cycle micro wave oven" for snap freezing food .
I am looking for investors if you are interested .
Have a great weekend ,
Willie

You think they might supply a bit of moondust with it to sprinkle on those late night steaks. I wonder how many they sell - and if they have a disclaimer which reads "money back guarantee only valid only for use on planets such as Mercury or those closer to the Sun".

Mmmmmmm...where is the tracking device?. I take it you bounce the suns rays to a focal point on your cooking pot. The earth is moving and the sun's focal point moves. Now what?. Your tucker need some time to cook but the focal point moives away from the target area. Better idea is to wrap up your food in alfoil and tie is to something in the engine bay. Time your driving and eat when you smell the tucker through the air vents :-) Both quite silly ideas.

Cheers

Reminds me when I was a kid living up at Woomera. Old man got hold of a 3 metre dia Aluminium Parabolic dish & we covered it in little mirrors. On a good day, we would melt Aluminium bar at the focal point!!

Got bored with it, so turned it into a fish pond!!

I built a solar oven a few years back out of two cardboard boxes and tin foil with moderate success. Solar cooking has been around for yonks, heaps of info on the web for those interested.

A great way to cook fish while you are out rock fishing . You just put the fishin a garbage bag in the sun for an hour and it's perfect - especially if
you have had no brakfast .
