Fireplace computer casemod

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2010

Winter. It’s the time of year when sitting by the fire not only warms your body, but seems to warm your soul. But what if you don’t have a fireplace? Well, you could make your own fireplace in your computer case.

This LCD screen with a computer behind it may not throw off much heat, but just the sight of it might help on a cold night. It’s better than nothing. And anyway it looks great. This thing is hot. Pun intended. The case was recently on display at the PDXLAN 16.5 event over in Portland.

Pump out the heat and the tunes in winter while keeping cozy and downing some hot chocolate. I don’t think the CalSpas FRP4300 Fireplace will come cheap, but it’s worth it because your friends fireplace doesn’t do all that.

The Amish want to heat your home

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on September 7th, 2008

The Amish want to heat your homeI’m still not sure what to make of this, but apparently there is some new miracle heater called the Heat Surge. It’s Chinese technology that you just plug into any standard wall outlet. Supposedly it only uses about as much energy to run, as a standard coffee maker, but will produce 5,119 BTU’s as on-board heat turbine silently forces hot air out into the room so you feel heat instantly. It has a UL listing and everything. Even if all that is true, the odd part is that those anti-tech, iPhone shunning Amish are busy as Christmas elves building mantles for these heaters, trying to keep up with demand so that customers can get their new fake fireplace before Christmas. If you ordered a mantle in the last 48 hours, the heater was thrown in for free. But now it will cost you from $249.00 to $337.00.

This is all centered around the Heat Surge Roll-N-Glow fireplace that actally rolls from room to room. How the Amish got involved in this I have no idea, but I do know that as they slave away on fireplace mantles, barns are going un-built, shunnings and exiles seem few and far between. What’s next? Will they trade in the horse and buggy for a Model T? It all seems like some sci-fi plot, where huge events are foreshadowed by strange behavior. What are they really doing? What happens when we take these heaters into our homes? Could this be the long dreaded Amish invasion that some of us have feared, where they turn the tables and take our technology, leaving us to plow fields and milk cows? Will I punished by our new masters for writing this? Probably not, since they have no internetz. Still I’m growing an old man beard and wearing plain clothes…just in case.

Honey can you move the fireplace?

Max Blank wood burning fireplace swivelsGerman designer Max Blank has a 21st century heating appliance that also serves as the center of your living room. This is the company’s Berlin model wood-burnings fireplace, a stand-alone unit that can sit anywhere you like in your dwelling. The gray finish with glass base compliments the Panasonic line of televisions so they have that going for owners of Panasonic home theater equipment.

There’s room for four shelves for you to display your knick knacks. Emissions and smoke are carried up the center pipe so all you’re limited to is where your chimney is located in the room. But the really stand-out feature of the Berlin fireplace is that the glass base can swivel a full 360-degrees allowing you the opportunity to face the fire no matter where you are in the room. Don’t move toward the fire, this time the fire can move to face you. Now where’s our swiveling bathtub?
