You won $75k for WHAT!?!? http://www.cnn.com/2009/TECH/04/09/solar.oven.global.warming/index.html http://www.forumforthefuture.org/blog/solar-cooker-wins-climate-change-challenge So, this guy wins $75,000 for putting aluminum foil on the inside of a cardboard box, thereby "inventing" a solar powered oven. Did anyone else do similar things, or see this kind of thing when they were kids? I remember Bill Nye and Mr. Wizard doing this exact same thing. I guess I'm just surly because I'm still paying off student loans and this guy is making bank on a really easy simple concept that's been around for ages. I mean, you give Les Stroud (probably my father) a cardboard box, some aluminum foil, a pot, and whatever he can find in the Brazilian jungle, and I imagine he'd be able to build an induction oven that can boil water in 90s or less.
