Atlanta Robotics Solar Oven

 Atlanta Robotics Solar OvenThe Atlanta Robotics Solar Oven is capable of boiling half a gallon of water in 20 minutes. This solar oven can cook food using nothing but the power of the sun.  The high point of this solar cooker is that it automatically tracks the sun.  Motor power can also be supplied by solar power through the charging of a 12 volt battery via the on-board solar panel and charge controller.  Other solar ovens and cookers fall short of optimal efficiency due to the necessity of having to constantly adjust the reflector towards the sun by hand and requires you to be nearby during cooking.  With the Atlanta Robotics Solar Oven, the reflector is automatically adjusted to face the sun.  Cooking efficiency is maximized without the cook needing to be around.
