Have you ever had an idea and realized that someone else already came up with that idea? Even worse the other individual has done his research and development and made that idea into a reality, so much to the fact that it looks exactly as you imagined it!
Trust me it’s quite annoying. There goes an opportunity for you to create your own business and to better yourself, professionally. A situation like this happened to a nutrition student and colleague of mine. She indicated to me that she was interested in figuring out how to harness solar energy for cooking with out the use of gas.
It was my unfortunate duty to tell her that this was already being done. New solar technology developed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor David Wilson and his team of students have created a Solar Powered Grill.
The device is still in its design stage while market research for entry into both developed and developing countries are on the way. As you can see from the conceptual images above, the product can be used in a variety of cultures. Here is a list of benefits, none of which the student even thought of:
- The technology stores heat for later use rather than generating it from scratch each time. By its design it harnesses the light of the sun and coverts it into heat via convection.
- Designs are either free of gas/propane use or partially uses such. In either case it avoides the need for firewood reducing air pollution and other related problems.
- The product offers an eco friendly method to cooking outdoors.
