The Solar Death Ray

Solar Death Ray is made of 112 mirrors mounted on a platform 4′ wide and 6′ tall. Each mirror is a square roughly 3.5″ on edge. All these mirrors focus the sun to a single spot 5’6″ from the mirror platform. A wooden fork extends from the mirror base to the area near the focus and serves as a mounting point for Solar Death Ray targets. The mirror platform is mounted to the support frame on a pivot that allows the platform to be angled. The whole system is mounted on a set of wheels. And, most importantly, you can melt stuff with it, like; AOL CDs, plastic army men, crayons and plastic ducks, all with full comedic photos and commentary
