Just a little thinking "out of the box" and truly ingenious ideas are born. These are the ideas of the future.
We are moving FORWARD--->

So true, Kit. And this technology could help with medical care in the wake of disasters in addition to developing countries and other non-electricity circumstances.

This environmentally friendly stove can be added to the emergency storage supplies to be used in case of a natural unexpected disaster like earthquakes. Any environmental group will be happy to promote this to cities across the nation.
