The subject line says it all. The guy who posted this has several videos documenting prototypes he's built. I haven't tried this out for myself but I could see it working really well for a greenhouse or chicken coop. Maybe even supplemental heat for a house...

I was thinking about asking my friends and parents to save their cans. My dad drinks cola like its water...

If one has children attending school, I could see it being feasible to ask the child to collect cans from friends.
