Wow. I came across this on the EEVBlog forum...it's an awesome use of technology for use in developing counties and for camping/emergency survival.

Fires for cooking aren't very efficient and waste a lot of fuel. This simple device improves combustion and provides electricity for charging cell phones and other small electronics. A peltier junction converts thermal energy into electricity which runs a fan to improve combustion and power for charging. A peltier junction is the same device used to keep your beer cold in a solid-state cooler. Awesome use of simple technology.



There are two sizes of these stoves. The camp stove is shown and these a larger size that could be used for daily living. The price for the camp stove is entirely reasonable at US$129.
