Have your lunch and heat it too

Because I live in New York City, I try as often as possible to make it to Central Park for picnics. But a picnic in the park deserves more interesting fare than standard sandwiches, so I try to pack a cooler with cheese and crackers, fruit, and frosty beverages. But why should hot foods have to miss out on all the fun? Wouldn't it be nice to mix it up and have both hot and cold snacks next time I make it out to the park?

This Solar-Powered Lunch Box makes it possible, managing to bring hot food to the outdoors without polluting the greenery in the effort. Teo Song Wei developed the concept as a green way to keep warm foods warm until you're ready to eat them.

As the idea is still a concept, you might have to stick to sandwiches for the time being. If it ever becomes a reality, you'll find me with my heated eats by the pond in the park.
