Using simple materials, easily procured, an MIT-led (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) team of engineers developed an electricity and flame free method of boiling water. Called a Solar Vapor Generator, the device is inexpensive, quick to build and doesn’t require direct sunlight to work. The Generator is able to capture enough ambient light to boil water even on overcast days. Built from a sponge, thin copper sheet and a spectrally-selective absorber that absorbs sunlight and traps heat, the design team believes the device could be used in a variety of environments. Potential applications include residential heating, medical equipment sterilization and wastewater…
