Solar Incense Burner is a fictional instrument which uses sunlight to burn and vaporize aromatic substances. Designed for environments with high albedo, or surface reflectivity, it uses a fresnel lens to concentrate UV light onto a heating dish, turning fragrant oil or rock into a thick cloud of smoke large enough to waft over an entire encampment. For the liberated individual who seeks to escape the crowded city, Solar Incense Burner acts as a technological medium to re-awaken one's sense of smell and space in the most extreme of biomes: the desert.
