We have no objections to anyone who uses these plans as a starting point for creating businesses that market kits or completed devices.
Weather in a Canis a multi-use device that relies on the same warm/cold dynamic that powers weather patterns. And the engine portion looks more like a large can than anything else.

WIAC energy levels are low, but efficiently obtained. After disasters like earthquakes, hurricanes or cyclones, a WIAC can be built quickly, on site from the abundance of scrap produced by the disaster.
The ability to cook food, charge cell phones and disinfect water is often the difference between dying and surviving until major help arrives.

Supplemental Solar Power
Thank You Mother Nature.It will never be mistaken for a living tree, but we're working on a solar powered generator that collects light in its fiber optic "needles" and transfers that energy to an inexpensive solar voltaic wafer that generates electricity from the light that falls on all of the "tree's" "needles".
For hundreds of millions of years, nature has found that needles (Like in pine trees) and blades (Like in grass) are an efficient way to catch sunlight. The sunlight follows the shape of the filament, so this type of solar collector won't require moving to follow the sun.
At this time, inexpensive Christmas Trees from China seem to be the best candidates for conversion into a relatively attractive solar generator.
Instead of the fiber optics transmitting light, they can be adapted to focus sunlight on a single chip hidden inside the device's trunk.
By mimicking nature, we think that we can create an economical solar energy source that looks at least a little more pleasing than windmills or panels on a roof. This is more a decorative novelty than a serious source of power, and it probably won't be useful for anything more than for recharging small devices.
