Default New type of air cooling

GE's piezoelectric cooling jets destined to replace computer fans | DVICE


Ran across this yesterday, and I can't wait to get my hands on a stack of these! They look thin enough to put between the fins on a heatsink or stack them up in front of a radiator, if they're really as quiet and powerful as they're claiming I'd invest heavily!

Vibration is bad. And they vibrate to create airflow.
Now you know how the Dyson bladeless fan works...

Couldn't the vibration be negated by mounting them opposite to one another? One right side up, the next upside down, repeated, and then wired into a fan controller. I understand the vibration could wreak havoc with whatever it's mounted to if the mount isn't strong enough or the vibration dampening sucks, but I still think it would be worth trying. Whenever they're available cheaply...

The Dyson bladeless fan actually has a fan in the base.
