processor produces electricity

via AppleInsider (but not exactly an Apple-centric news): “Eneco chief executive Lew Brown delivered a sales pitch to potential investors about a new ‘solid state energy conversion/generation chip’ under development that will convert heat directly into electricity, according to the Green Business News.

According to the article, companies like Apple and Dell are interested, but are still wondering what to do with it.

Anyway it’s an interesting research.
