    Vortex tubes are trippy and neat. Plain old compressed air in, cold air out one end and hot air out the other. It's super cool, just insanely inefficient if you plan to actually use it to cool anything lol. There's a video by This Old Tony that builds and explains them, as well as many other videos discussing the physics if that's your thing.

    In the thumbnail, I thought he was holding a bottle, so I was expecting a beer cooled pc 🤣

    You just know they're going to strap that to a CPU somehow.

    These are called "Hilsch Vortex Tube". You put in compressed air, get +200°C air out the long end and -50°C air out the short side. Terribly inefficient, but simple and no moving parts, and if you need cooling and only have compressed air, this is the perfect solution.

    The hot air is like when I ate spicy food

    I have literally cooled a pc with this before. It was for a PC embedded in a OEM machine that was to be placed in a very hot plant environment

    I watched IRglor 'this old Tony's design and make one of these. He does a good job at explaining how it works also.

    Hey Linus, I Was just doing a bit of a research on vortex tube , i read this , Vortex tubes have lower efficiency than traditional air conditioning equipment. They are commonly used for inexpensive spot cooling, when compressed air is available.

    "Miraculous device" that's just any thermic engine... freezer, air conditionning, heck even your hair dryer does that

    It’s LTT I’m sure sure there will be some way, scuffed or not
