I am all for generating power at the source of consumption. My las blog was on an MIT article on the US doubling Solar Power generation in 2011.

The article shows a mirror farm concentrating the suns rays on a tower and generating electricity. The brings me to an idea. Why not design a Solar Hat using the same concept.

  • The hat would be made of miniature mirrors
  • The mirrors would concentrate the suns rays on a fine heat absorbing tube
  • The water in the tube would heat and be converted into steam
  • The steam would drive an engine or a turbine
  • The engine or turbine could power a generator
  • The generator would power the motors of the exoskeleton
  • Well would be one big hat (head)for the Exoskeleton 🙂

Who knows where we could go from here?
