Unless you've been living under a rock the past year, you've undoubtedly heard about cryptocurrency. And you've most likely also heard about that 15 year old kid next door that is now a millionaire thanks to his crypto 'mining' rig. The one thing about crypto mining, however, is that it uses a LOT of computing power and generates a ton of heat. So what did the guys over at Qarnot do? They decided to take advantage of both the demand for crypto mining and the side effects of generating hashes all day and created the QC-1 Crypto Heater. This space heater uses a pair of graphics cards that are capable of mining up to 60 MH/s while producing enough heat to warm your home. They describe it as 'a source of revenue, not an expense.' We love it.

GuardBot Surveillance Robot
Although this product is still in early stages, the Guardbot Surveillance Robot gives users a glimpse at what the future world of mobile surveillance might look like. This robot is capable of traversing any terrain, whether its the rugged mountains, water, the countryside, or any urban or city environment. Sizes range from 5 inches to 7 feet in diameter and a motorized pendulum can move the unit forward and back all while allowing a full 360 degree turning radius. The Guardbot is controlled via either satellites or remote control and packs a whopping 25 hour run capacity per charge. Two cameras, microphones and a GPS make this a major step for remote surveillance. We expect to see this robot popping up in military testing videos and news stories in the near future.
