This is very funny - however the real use is: Space heater.  I can't wait for winter to come.  I'll be plenty warm this year.

If you normally have electric heating in your home, you might as well use Bitcoin miners instead. All power used by these things ends up as heat, so in that sense they're just as efficient as a regular heater that uses the same amount of power. Except you also get Bitcoins.

Thanks for answering seriously. Seems we don't have much of a mature community after all.

I can attest to that.  My family went out of town last winter. I put the thermostat at 55F, put two miners in my room and shut the door, I was in a sauna in an hour, making btc and ltc.

Space heater that is dangerous to cats and children.  You can use them as clothes dryers too if you aim the exhaust at your clothes on a clothesline.

Other then using it as a heater, it is better off selling it..

I've seen some people make keychains from USB block erupters, those are kind of neat.

I use my obsolete miners as dust collectors. I live in the desert so they'll soon be virtually invisible. Maybe thousands of years from now some archaeologist will uncover them and wonder what the hell they were for.

No.

How about using the exhaust for drying wood or perhaps to dehydrate food (make your own beef jerky)?
