Solar Absurdities

1 – Solar powered music box. Plays the song “you are my sunshine” powered by sunshine.

2 – Solar powered water pump placed in ocean. Slowly pumped the ocean onto land using the sun.

3 – Solar powered light. Only works in the daytime.

The energy from the sun is everywhere, however it is sometime ignored as such. However, when it is translated by technology, its power can be seen. These devices were made to “waste energy”, however in doing so no actual loss was made. Can machines have purpose as dictated by nature?
