Double Duty Protest Sign/Solar Cooker




Intro: Double Duty Protest Sign/Solar Cooker

My generic Earth Day protest sign turns into a solar oven.

Step 2:

On a warm sunny day, you don't even need the outer cover. And, it draws folks naturally to your sign, so you can chat with them about things.  You know, things...

    HA HA! Never thought of that! The Morse thing is a cool idea! Can keep the far ends of protest swarm connected. Of course we can use mobile phones! But that beats the idea of saving the planet.
