Summertime Survivalist Solar Water Grill

Introduction: Summertime Survivalist Solar Water Grill

About: You may recognize Dan and Denise Rojas from their appearances in various made for tv movies and national commercials. As the hosts of Green Power Science, they share Fresnel lens and alternative energy ideas...

This is a 43" diameter water parabola lens that can reach in excess of 1,000f  The water lens is running at about 80% of maximum power. The water needs to be distilled, rain or  R/O for maximum power. I used well water to demonstrate that it will work with groundwater. The popcorn was filmed with a  Casio EXILIM Pro EX-F1.

    at about the 4 minute mark u mentioned using the excess energy while watching it heat up, i was thinking u could make a satellite dish shaped solar panel around the outside of the main focal point not directly in it or u might burn the solar panels but yea that could do something and find out how much it generates and idk lets say its 12V at 1W u hook 8 AA rechargeable batteries up to the panels to charge and use that power for whatever and who knows it might put out more than 12V 1W ^w^ well i hope that helps and i expect to see another video eventually
