3. I have a thing against wasteful use of energy and you can't get much worse than keeping a drink cool/hot using a peltier. It's analoguous to having a water cooled system that has a constant flow of water from the cold tap!

4. Who has a beer long enough for it to get warm? I'd much rather have a ready supply of cold ones to keep 'em flowing.

5. When complete it will actually be quite large, so more encumbering than a simple foam insulation surround.

Ok, I think I'm done, off the top of my head. I by no means hold these opinions with any great fervour I just want to defend/explain my earlier points.

Couple of editions since first posting:


I wasn't actually flaming anyone so don't please start.

8. The reason i made my initial point was in reaction to the feeling of, 'Yeah, i like beer as well!!?' Like it made you cool or something? When it was a vote on the best project.

Once again I say, I don't mean any offence just don't want to people to think I was starting something. (hehe, probably too late for that.)

1. none taken, and thank you ;)

2. would have to let the bit-tech staff awnser that, they were the ones who picked the final 5.

3. the device uses under 60watt's so less then a common light bulb. the electroincs is designed to be energy saving, the pelteir is not always on, only when the temperature increases/decreases above or below the temperature set by the user.

4. I personaly take my time over beer and like it not to warm up while im drinking it, on hot days you can notice a change in temperature of the beer after just 1 or 2 mins.

5. It also does a whole lot more then a foam surround, and its not as if its been designed to be sold in the shops.

6. you missed :p

7. not going to get into.

8. I dont think so, most made technical comments about my design and others befor casting there vote.

For current effots, I would have to say Feeding Frenzy++. Though hopefully next month we'll also see some of the more unfinished projects back in the race (and looking forward to FrozenFire and Moondust)

My vote goes to Feeding Frenzy as well

mobius9 1st October 2005, 06:18 Quote
the peltier cooler, because I was going to make a retractable bawls cooler, and am learning a lot from this one.

Top Nurse's Feeding Frenzy for me. Such awesome attention to detail totally makes it for me.

it's been said, but why isn't there a proper vote on this thread?
It would make it easier for everyone.

My vote goes to miniG5sized, though it looks like there's already a clear winner :(
(yeah I know I've gone against my own value-for-money opinion in feedback)

My vote is for MiniG5ized
Zut 1st October 2005, 19:29 Quote
MiniG5ized definately :D

the peltier cooler/warmer wins my vote, only just though, the other entries were all quite good too.
uwannabigmak 1st October 2005, 21:40 Quote
Theyre all amazing. Id have to say the beer cooler/tea warmer just wins, though because of the raw time and skill needed. However, it was a REALLY tough choice.

Rev.Zero will have my vote, I'm very excited to see where this project lands. Keep up the good work ;)

After reading through the logs over a few days, I found it extremely hard work to narrow it down to one that I liked the most.

So I've picked two :)

MiniG5ized for a PC-case mod and the pelt cooler for er.. just being so freaking cool!

My vote: The Peltier Drink Cooler/Warmer
Firefox90 2nd October 2005, 19:50 Quote
Rev.Zero because I am modding the same case and am impressed at how the conversion is coming out, although MiniG5ized is close behind.
