Flat Pack Solar Oven (200°+): 8 Steps (with Pictures)

The reflective foil is crucial to the design of this oven style cooker because it directs a lot more sunlight, and therefore, heat, into the oven. Remembering back to the last step, the side panels can move and change angles due to the design of the supporting mechanism, and that feature plus the corners helps tremendously at increasing the efficiency of your oven because you can direct maximum sunlight into the oven regardless of where the sun is located (basically mandatory features for evening cooking and early morning cooking when the sun isn't directly overhead). Adding the reflective foil to the side flaps is quite simple, and again you can just use any adhesive you would like.

In this case, it is fine to use hot glue because the area will not be experiencing intense heat, but it might just be easier to use the same adhesive throughout the project.

Refrigerator replaces humming parts with solid-state cooling

Devices such as the hiku fridge magnet are already enabling consumers to intelligently track their stock and automatically create shopping lists when they're low. Focusing on the energy-efficiency side of things, Phononic is a company that's bringing solid-state technology to coolers, making them more reliable, green, and quiet. Those familiar with computer accessories and hardware will know that in recent years mechanical disk drives have for the most part been replaced by solid state alternatives. As well as being less susceptible to shock, they're faster, smaller and work silently.
