i was reading about how facebook wanted developers, arm in the article, to make heat less hot;
"reducing the heat that today’s processors emit"
i have a fan in my room, and it blows air on me while i sit on my chair and i had a thought.
if heat is finite, it can travel through the air and i can feel the heat in the air the fan pushes on me, but if i put a obstacle in-between me and the air the fan is pushing, the heat energy will be used up getting past the obstacle, which would make the air reaching me more cool.
so i have a old piece of plastic mesh from the crafting section of the walmart down the road and i got some of my nylon zip ties
i put the plastic mesh in the front of my fan and held it in place using the nylon zip tie and it made the air from the fan cooler.
see the attached picture to see my fan.
so my idea for facebook to reduce the heat is to have the fan they blow on stuff to cool it, to have the fan push air through a mesh like im using and then the heat will get absorbed by the mesh making the cooling system work better and make it so you need less energy to have the same cooling.
