Typical Daily Mail, overreacting again. It's a British newspaper. You couldn't build one of those that worked in the UK - there's never enough sun. And you'd be continually wiping the rain off the Fresnel lens.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/

Here in the desert I would probably get better results than most. But a .22 cal bullet or hail storm or a hard wind like we get would kill that death ray in a second.
Having said all of that. Yeah, I'll build ya one. Cost $200.00 (payment in advance). Pickup only.

What I would like is something to burn or at least jam car stereos and karaoke machines with a range of about 100ft. Damn "neighbors"

This looks like it would be nothing more than a dangerous toy and probably turn into trouble in the hands of most users. It's also a waste of good lumber creating that wooden frame and stand. Surely there won't be many builders that will actually use it as a tool for melting their metals or cooking their hotdogs. While I do have a large rear-projection tv that's no longer in use, it's unlikely that I'll be attempting a death ray build anytime soon, as just reading about it more than satisfies my own curiosity.oz

On the other hand, could this begin to use recycled tv's as solar kilns and power arrays?
