Heat Pipe Bird

Drinking Bird that sips on your heat pipe

heat pipes are efficient if not boring. water cooling has cool little pumps and coloured liquid. Heat pipes have... pipes.

I suggest integrating a so called "drinking bird" type device into a heat pipe design. They both work off the same concept. At the top of the loop where phase change occurs. a drinking bird could be placed. with some clever case placement. Perhaps he could hit the f5 key or the "y" key if your a stay-at-home nuclear engineer. A bobble head of a boss or Coworker could be placed for some instant approvals of your ideas.

It would add a little pizzaz and movement to the most boring heating concept since fins.
