    Shouldn't be moved if he was implying the reminder that wind energy is a viable/renewable source of energy. There's also tide/current energy, harnessing casual kinetic energy (like a spring board hooked to a generator @ a night club), and, honestly, we can burn people. There are over 7 billion of those things; at least we should use the energy from people who are cremated.

    Not sure why it never really took off. Plane pun unintended.

    Expensive, unnecessary.

    Stirling engines are weak. You are saving a tiny amount of energy for a tiny amount of heat removal. An electric fan removes a lot more heat than it generates.

    Yeah, but the more important consideration is how much power it takes to run an electric fan on something low powered (like maybe a laptop), a solution that would remove heat with a comparable efficacy without using battery power could be really useful.

    You really think you're going to fit something like that in a laptop? Even if you could miniaturize it to that point it would be absolutely useless.

    Okay, maybe not a laptop. :P
