Computers as heat sources
The BBC posted a news article the other day on an alternative heating system. And though it feels more like summer today (well a UK summer) it's a technology after my own heart. I can't count the times where my laptop has protected me from the winter chill. Now, thanks to Nerdalize the 'waste' heat from computers can be put to good use and what a better way to heat your home and contribute to science by lending porcessor power to labour-intensive tasks, like gene-mapping or video game rendering... after all 'winter is coming'.
