    Is there a retail outlet in the Uk where I can purchase the sunflower home heliostat? Has anyone in the UK purchased one from your company. If so, would it be possible to see one in action.

    Thank you
    Steve

    Where to buy this in holland. Is it possible to place this macihine at a higher level to give sun at ground floor outside place with plants. We can catch the sun 3 meters higher maybe by putting the macine at a waal. Greetings lennie pardoel. l.pardoel@freeler.nl

    Great idea.

    If it doesn’t already, it should track the moon as well.
