    A Dutch startup has been using the body heat of volunteers to mine cryptocurrencies in a project reminiscent of “The Matrix.”

    The Institute of Human Obsolescence (IoHO), a business venture based in The Hague, Netherlands, since 2015 has utilized specially-designed bodysuits to turn excess body heat into digital currency.

    That's just silliness. Totally inefficient. I'd guess it's more of a PR gimmick than a real attempt to get energy in a better way.

    You Could Mine 1 Bitcoin Per Month If You Harvested the Body Heat from 44,000 People
