Beverage-Can Stove (or Pop-Can Stove)

My nephew was telling me about a handy little stove you can make out of a soda can. He's made a couple of them. They're small, lightweight, and put out a lot of heat. (Great for hiking.) Here's the link to the site he found: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beverage-can_stove. Thanks for sharing Ben!

UPDATE: Ben gave me his first prototype. (Thanks Ben!) He demonstrated how it works. "AMAZING" is pretty much the word to describe this little gadget (and my nephew Ben!)

This is intriguing! I was looking at a stack of veggie cans last night and trying to decide whether I would punch holes in the base and use them as starter pots for plants, or in the case of the larger can, turn it into an emergency stove of some sort. I will have to check this out, but we will have to get soda cans from someone else as we don't drink soda hardly at all.
