    Interesting to know if they could extend the uses to air conditioning. Imagine being able to heat or cool each room in your house individually, as opposed to one central temperature control? Some rooms (such as a study or living room) can get hotter then others because of all the electronics in them that give off heat, so you could make those rooms slightly cooler then others to reach an actual similar temperature (or just change them by personal preference)

    Yeah. The only questions is how much energy does it take to run vice current methods.

    The hard part is the mechanical issues. Thats a lot of consistently moving parts, which usually means failure.
