    Get paid to sit on/hold onto things!

    341 lbs of water 1F in one hour? That`s about 42 gallons of water +1F in an hour? I don`t disbelieve it, but I`d be interested to see the proof of the claim.

    Actually, a human body generates closer to 1500 W of heat. You can harvest it from the condenser side of the building air conditioning system. However, in the winter, you`re better off just letting it heat the building.

    It reminds me of the one mall (Can`t remember the name or place right now) in which just the motion and mass of people keep the whole thing heated without employing heaters.

    Smagboy technically what they`re saying is correct, if we accept the btu value which I have no idea about. But there is a much bigger problem they are simply ignoring, all of the measily body heat would need to magically transfer into the water and the barrel of water would need to be perfectly insulated (both of which is impossible). So the entire premise is ridiculous, when its not feasible to create electricity when you`ve got a sun beaming down heat.

    It would have been a better premise in the matrix if humans were used to provide intelligence and problem solving for the machine.

    I:ll have to check my physics book but recall that the human body actually creates more energy (pound for pound) than the sun

    There are houses designed to be heated by their occupants.

    @handimanner: I think you`d better check that physics book.

    probably less efficient than solar power

    Somebody forgot to apply the conversion efficiency and losses.

    All fine until the consumption goes up:
