Solar Cannon (9 pics)

Pics | 30 Nov, 2012 | Views: 6925 |  +12   |  
Interesting solar canon that was used in Paris. It consists of a magnifying glass and a cannon itself. At the solar midday on a sunny day the glass focuses on the light if the cannon and it fires.

Great tool for harrassing fires. I've seen similar time-delayed devices (blocks of ice in a mortar tube that melts over time, etc).

5 minutes walk from my home there's the only working solargun in the world:
http://www.solkanonklubben.se/
solkanonen_till_solkanonklubbe
n.htm

It's a 6-pounder and you can hear it for miles. It's fully automatic except the loading so long as it is sunny weather. It was used as a clock for the castle's workers and today the last baron of Sweden lives here as well. He is a friendly man but requires anyone to adress him with sir if you do not know him on a personell level, which of course everyone does as a sign of history. 01

If anyone whishes to know more about this or want to have photographies just give me a shout. :D Maybe I should consider sending pics and info to acidcow.com?
