Giant Fresnel Lens powers engine
I can see a tremendous potential for this product. If it can do as displayed in the video, think of the possibilities for charging your battery
, the one on your trailer, not the ones in your camera or mp3 player, with a low potential quazi traditional generator
style, only not using fossil fuels.
I see a dynamo type generator
, not human powered, that slowly generates power back into your battery
. I doubt if this could be adapted to actually *Run* any items with any kind of current demands.
However.. as much as this potential fascinates me... all I can see is a FOREST FIRE
. I don't trust humans to be responsible, (except for our board members, of course) and accidents do happen, despite the best preventative measures one can take.
What do our scientists think of this? Is there a fool proof way to prevent the sun from hitting this item when not in use or in proper position? How does one keep it focused as the sun moves? Is there anyway to have it create "Bulk" heat that can be transfered to the shaft instead of having it directly focused on it?
This is both exciting and disheartening.. like the cure for cancer is plain old household bleach, but the cure also kills the patient. Sigh.
