computing heater (QH-1)
a computing heater that warms rooms reusing waste-heat from high performance computations
The QH-1 (formerly called Q.rad) is the 1st computing heater embedding microprocessors as a heat source. Connected to the Internet, it brings comfort, security and intelligence into every room: dynamic Wi-Fi, presence detection, air quality monitoring and many other sensors. Most of all, heat is generated by embedded computers working remotely for companies as a distributed data center: you get 100% free and green heat!

Green render farm (Qarnot Render)
Qarnot Render is a render farm designed for CG artists and 3D studios, where renderings heat buildings.
Qarnot computing heats buildings with computations. Qarnot Render is a fully-featured renderfarm supporting many applications (V-Ray, Blender, Renderman, Guerilla...), accessible through a super-friendly web interface, a REST API and/or a Python SDK. A distributed cloud made up of computing heaters and boilers using high-end CPUs to heat offices and residential buildings, Qarnot Render is as eco-friendly as performant. "Cosmos Laundromat", short movie by the Blender foundation and Jury Prize award at SIGGRAPH 2016, was entirely rendered with Qarnot.
