A great number of conventional household appliances operate on the theory of making something out of nothing, but the Sun Container Space Heater is a fine example of a machine that marks the future of intelligent design.

Instead of sucking electricity out of the grid, this cutting-edge concept proposes the use of the ever-present solar heat and energy acquired quite effortlessly by placing this contraption next to a window. The system incorporates four main components that permit the collection and recovery of the sun's warmth with the help of slate fins, an aluminum base and a transparent glass shell. The principle at work is inspired by the Trombe wall theory.

Remarkably, the Sun Container Space Heater developed by industrial design student Florent Bouhey Fayolle can radiate heat at up to 120 Watts. Stats for Resourceful Eco Radiators Trending: Older & Chilly
