Come on Freddy. Can ya? can ya? Start workin on it. Maybe a conversion kit for my DVC-500?

Oh, you guys, You should have known that I did that some years back. They were problematic & I had just too many complaints. I had to stop building them because no matter how small I made them, one would heat the houses on both sides. The only way to keep from overheating was to run air conditioners 24/7 and the compressors were costly. People could plant gardens all year 'round but 37 foot corn stalks were difficult to harvest. They also confused the deer and the glow had nocturnal animals roaming the streets at noon time. There wasn't that much profit either. You sell one and they don't need another one for 188 years. Sure seemed like a good idea, but it turned on me so now I settle for burning coal. Be careful what you wish for!

I think I tried one of those prototypes. No wonder my dog grew an extra rear leg. He was happy, he could still stand on 2 legs, while lifting the 3rd for a fire hydrant. :)
