This question already has an answer here:
Computers get hot. So usually we try to make them less hot. But what if instead of trying to cool down a computer we used that heat for something else? Not necessarily any thing big like a whole room; maybe just something like a pet's cage.
Is funneling the heat generated by a computer (any kind; desktop, server rack, etc.) a practical thing to do? Are there any reliable stories of it being done successfully?
