Better yet make a car computer that generates bitcoins as you drive. Plug in a wifi or 3g card and you're all set!....  Cheesy

If you gave it enough power and the right cooling system, you could make it look like it really is steam powered. Cheesy

That's cool, probably doesn't use much electricity, but how much khash would this generate? Grin

Suposedly it uses 1 to 2 W only and the CPU has a cryptographic acceleration: http://plugcomputer.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=197.0

Sounds very interesting for bitcoin.

EDIT: The 1 W propaganda of the webpage is just that, propaganda (as spected). In real life test it uses 4W when iddle and 11W when CPU at 100% with USB and network being used. Still its very very good.
