Octocube radiator looks like cubist brain meat

The Octocube radiator is a sculptural concept heater by Vivien Muller that would probably be pretty good at heating up a cold room, given all that surface area. But I can’t help but think that with a thin slathering of translucent gelatin and some Pollackesque splatters of red paint, I’d have a lovely Spam-like cube of quivering cerebellum heating my living room.

    This looks like the innards of the Bose Wave, on steroids.

    bruce – Bose Wave on steroids?

    you mean, you put a cheap speaker at one end and something unspeakably awful (instead of just plain bad) comes out the other?

    I must admit,that is a very good looking cube :)

    At the right size, this would would look extra cool as an external heat sink for a liquid-cooled PC.

    Jesus God, imagine trying to get the cat hair, dust bunnies, and miscellaneous swarf out of that thing after six months.

    I bet you could make one out of 90-degree copper “street elbows.” Those are made to nest into one another. Like this:

    Though the soldering would be really tedious, and at .69 (tee hee) per elbow, it would add up fast.
