If that is a real, viable tech, that's pretty much awesomesauce. Makes me a little worried that it floats above it though (magnetism?). That thing comes loose at 2000rpm, say goodbye to your pc.

If Sandia just developed it then I wouldn't count on it being commercially available for many years.

Another idea I had was the spy/sniper being able to climb into the soldier's rocket launcher and be launched across the map, dealing more damage, but no splash.

pftt licensing? There's probably going to be chinese copies on ebay out years before they get any officially licensed product.

It floats above it?

I wonder how much of a pain putting it on will be.

Probably not too hard at all once you have what I imagine would be magnets, set up.

"Instead, it sits a mere thousandth of an inch above the processor, which creates what's called an air bearing that's actually just as efficient at transmitting heat."

So wait, it's using magnet to sit above it?
I didn't watch the video but I didn't see anything in the article.

Wouldn't magnets on the inside of a computer be bad?

Nah thats such a myth these days. Only HDD's need to worry and they are very protected from all but the strongest magnets.
