( and thus use the same amount of energy as a fan spinning at the same speed, did you see how long this thing can coast for? so long as once upscaled they still support their own weight they would likely use the same amount of energy. Considering some air conditioning fans use silly amounts of amps already this shouldn't really be a problem,)
3. Yes I know this, I'm so confused man lol.
I'm not sure what any of that has to do with what I said.
Sandia have a condenser type design within their PDF ( it's basically two Sandia coolers and copper piping)
You posted a picture of a radiator, and called it a condenser. That's what I'm having trouble wrapping my brain around.
Sandia is saying condenser, but the more common word for this type of condenser is heatpipe. The heatpipes are what they are using, and that is effectively a closed loop condenser (one end), absorber (opposite end), and radiator (surface of heatpipe over condenser area.
Maybe I'm missing something? If so, can you tell me what it is, because I cannot see it...
