For the last week or so I've been semi-obsessed with building and testing out my latest solar project: a solar powered space heater for my office. You can check out my work which I documented here .
I've also recently built and tested (with success) a Tesla Turbine ... I'll probably make a page dedicated to it as well .
Finally, I'm working on YASP (yet another solar project). This time I'm making use of my math and artificial intelligence skills. I'm writing a piece of software which simulates a reflecting dish that (ideally) focuses sunlight on a central point. Parabolas do this just fine, but the problem is that when the sun moves the parabola has to as well. I'd like to find a dish shape that requires no moving through the day and still reflects a large portion of the solar rays (even as the sun travels across the sky) onto a central area.
So yep... things are humming along over here!
