SOLAR DEATH RAY (for hot dogs). Bask in the fiery power of the sun! Eat questionable meat products afterwards! If you're going to Burning Man, you can try this out for yourself.
Come on over to the Alternative Energy Zone AEZ and cook your wiener on the SOLAR DEATH RAY 3000
"Where we Harness the Sun for Destructive Fun"
Warning: Do not look into beam with remaining eye.
Okay okay, so this is a little off topic, but it's Friday. Plus all the people in these pictures clearly are full prosthetic. I swear.
look awsome, reminds me of a sculpture i saw a few years ago, had the same effect excepti tkept burning pidgeons as they flew through the focal point o the light lol
i love this post. it is funny. ha. ha.
Woah prosthetic hot dog sticks! Hi-tech!
It is actually possible to make a much smaller and cheaper, but still effective, version of this to cook hotdogs (or anything, really). Can be useful when you're camping or just bored:
1.Thoroughly gluestick aluminum foil to a paper plate
2.Make about a dozen cuts from the rim towards the center, stopping about 2 inches from the center.
3.Overlap the flaps and staple into a bowl or cone (The deeper the depression, the more focused the energy)
4.Secure a stick or wire through the middle to hold the hot dog, so it pokes out like the arm on a satellite dish, and mount the whole thing in a cardboard box, pointed at the sun.
5.Leave it for a few hours to cook, but not too long as this device can scorch your food!
(Cooking times will vary.)
Not that easy to bring to a bbq in the park but very cool.
actually, all the curvature does is determine where the focus of the mirror is. All concave mirrors have a focus at a determinable point when using the sun as your light source
