Meet the SunRocket : a solar kettle + portable water heater that relies on sunlight to get the job done. It uses an evacuated tube and reflective panels to heat and boil water. It can heat water in as little as 30 minutes if the weather is cooperating. You can close it to use it like a thermos and keep your water warm. You can also use the SunRocket to melt snow and make sterile water. Sets you back under $60.
