The Kyoto Box Revolutionizes Third World Living

 - Apr 9, 2009
Inventors, take note of the design process for the Kyoto Box: Take a cardboard box, paint it black, add some reflective material, and collect $75,000. The Kyoto Box has won the Forum for the Future grand prize for sustainable lifestyle improvements.

The super-simple idea for the Kyoto Box came from a Kenyan inventor to make solar cooking more widespread. The Kyoto Box is capable of generating enough heat to sterilize water, boil and bake foods. The Kyoto Box hopefully will replace the cutting of forests for wood fueled fires, thereby preserving a precious natural resource.
