Alternative source of heat

hot hand fridge


Hae-Jin Kim has an interesting idea to harness the waste heat generated by a typical refrigerator. It's not quite enough to function as a hot plate, but 150 degrees might be able to dry a pair of socks or keep a burrito warm? I wonder if this heat could be channeled to a small green house structure for a steady flow of warmness as long as the refrigerator is on?
