Lightbulb is a neat idea.   I really like it and want one to play around with.   Just would be a fun project.

I think space heaters make a lot of sense.  They could easily do anything with heat.    Or maybe a fun USB one that uses sun to get power stores it and allows a usb to mine all day with no electricity that would be neat.

Definitely go with the Vagiminer.  Did you register that yet?  Better hurry up because its a good one.

Exercise bicycles will be next.  You pedal to generate the electricity and you are hot and sweaty anyway so you won't notice the tiny bit of extra heat.  And then sofa seats.  Every time you fart it will jiggle little magnets back and forth, generating a tiny electric charge that is then used to mine and heat up your seat at the same time.  Not useful by itself, but can you imagine the collective power of the world's gas?

You are absolutely right. I once had some miners hosted for another forum member. I hosted them over the winter and these little miners produced enough heat so that i did not need to turn the heating system on.

Though its not a new idea at all. Many miners implemented these things in their calculation about if a hardware buy would be worth it.

Saying that, the only problem is that you need to buy them for the winter, you really dont want them to have in your living room in the summer.  Roll Eyes

Please ALWAYS contact me through bitcointalk pm before sending someone coins.

Bicyles that mine bitcoins would be neat as i use it mainly for my daily commute, maybe integrated with some sport trackers app?

probably but it's not healthy wo have wifi sitting near you all day and every day, i'm already dropping my phone away from me as a possible

it would be better if the bicycles can connect to the internet with an inside wifi that it is isolated or maybe that is not so near you(maybe inside the air chamber?)

I can imagine that you can mine with anything, what is created to produce heat or heating anything..

Mining with a bicycle has the same problems as mining with everything else - you're turning fuel into heat, so if heat is not the primary goal of the machine you're wasting fuel. A bicycle's main goal is to transport you from one place to another using your body's stored energy. If you like the idea of a pedal-powered generator that costs more in sandwiches than you mine in coin (which may be the case if you really want exercise) then sure, that's great. But if your goal is to get from one place to another, adding a generator and bitcoin miner basically means you'll be pedalling uphill even on flat ground.

Tacking miners into everything is a wholly stupid idea.
