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.
Can also be used to extract mechanical energy [metarinka, Feb 10 2010]
