Fish tank heater?  Would need wifi, but would be a cool little device nonetheless.

I would love this idea.  I have a small tank.  If my fish would swim around a miner that would be amazing.  Instead of star trek characters i would have to start naming them after bitcoin items Smiley

Don't overclock too much or you cook the fish  Grin

Yes that would kill any fish in a tank. But it could be a good idea if you need hot water, also if you put it in a river you can have a very cheap and extremely effective cooling system  Smiley

I hope it's not too late yet, ... my ideal miner would be of course the that has the power source built in, that has a display with % of accepted shares, that comes with a power cord, usb to upgrade the firmware in the easy GUI menu or OTA upgrade, ethernet port with PoE. Of course it will come with the new sfards chips in a small factory so could be a size of a 20x20x5cm and can have some broadwell processor in it. So the miner will be a router, which can be powered with PoE, when is not mining. If the user would want to mine, he will just plug in the power cord beside ethernet. Of course the PoE can provide a power up to 25W so it is good enough to be a media player also, this would require some emmc flash, lets say 8gb and ddr ram, lets say 1gb. on the device there will be installed android OS, which user can use for the home media player, with PoE powering only, or as a miner with power cord connected. of course the media player type of miner would require HDMI output. because the broadcomm processors have also bluetooth and wifi connections available, the device can also be a home audio bridge. for this option we would need AV out connected to amplifier or sound system, device can without any visual output, enable bluetooth or wifi signal, on which is then connected iOS or Android device. the iOS or Android device can then play music through wireless network to the "miner" which then ouputs the music to sound system.

I have already posted the idea on the FB Wink

Thanks for putting this on. Was fun to read the way out and not so way out ideas.

@SFARDS
A bit costly but can you put one of these in your miners?

A lot of what people want is in there.

Well week's gone now...

well, I feel like my post might be a serious contender for "The most market appealing design award: 100 LTC", if not quite the "Most Creative".

Hopefully SFARDS was serious about the rewards Smiley I didn't post a payment address at the time because it seems unnecessary, and would prefer to be contacted by PM to share that sort of info.

The 'ideal' unit would be something small enough for home use, but large enough that it could be used in larger farms profitably. This is best seen as:


1) 1500-5000GH/unit
2) $400-1500/unit
3) external (user-provided) power supply, hopefully drawing less than 250W/PCIe connector
4) rack-mount dimensions (2U-4U) and stackable. Half-depth would be a smart way to keep the unit small but remain rackmountable.
5) fans that are less than 70dB. That should make it reasonable for home use (at least in a spare bedroom or basement). This means ideally 120mm or 140mm fans only.

6) string design for chips - this is >10% more efficienct
7) design the webUI similarly to what spondoolies-tech built (very detailed settings, stats, logging, scheduling, etc)
Cool design the ability to modify BOTH the voltage AND frequency, as well as the fan settings if possible. this allows wider range of users to run it at peak or in quieter modes.

9) basic outer case. put the power and ethernet connections on the same side, use a basic sheet metal enclosure. 2-4 leds is sufficienct, anything more becomes 'too blinky'. something like the SP3x design is ideal.
10) consider a small screen that can readout hashrate and/or IP address.


MY 'DO-NOT' LIST:
1) fans <80mm are loud
2) miners <1500GH mean buyers end up with a huge stack of units. dont build anything with <$400 MSRP
3) miners >40 pounds (~16kg) can be a bit heavy to move around
4) miners that act as nightlights. all i want is a singlular LED that is lit solid in normal operation and isnt blinding.


-Klondike

24" PCI-E cables with 16AWG wires and stripped ends - great for server PSU mods, best prices https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=563461
No longer a wannabe - now an ASIC owner!
