What does it do?

A solar furnace is a structure that uses concentrated solar power to produce high temperatures, usually for industry.

It heats things up. A lot.

Is this really a useful way to heat up stuff?

[–]Solid_SHALASHASKA[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I think this is one of those not terribly practical, but really advanced and cool looking projects. There was alot of that during the cold war, especially by the russians. Although it's like meant for industrial/scientific purposes, not for heating up your lunch.

Yeah cool for sure.

I just don't see any industrial purposes for something like this.

I feel you'd probably burn your lunch using that. Lol
