QC1 is the first cryptocurrency heater that is designed by the French computing company, Qarnot. The company claims to defray electric bill costs by passively mining Ethereum (by default) and other cryptos of your choice – Bitcoin, Litecoin – while toasting your room like an overused PlayStation.

It's intuitively designed user experience makes mining as difficult as it's simple initial set up. For about $3,500 (USD), you will have to do some math to decide if it is a good investment. Aside from all of that, it is a sleek little black machine, topped with a clean midcentury-modern strip of wood and a scant amount of dotted, lit-up indicators, it's all connected to an app.

The process of mining generates heat, a problematic amount of heat. Like an over-inflamed part of the body, normally the solution is to bring the heat down with fans and other extensive cooling methods. With the QC1, Qarnot has turned the unwanted inflammation into a well-marketed, passively positive feature, a heater for your winter days at home.

It is hard to say whether this is a computer that passively heats your home or a heater that passively mines you a volatile, roughly estimated $120 of Etherium per month. Although, in the end, both effects can be desirable, depending on the time, place, year and market value.
