MADE IN IBM LABS: IBM scientists at the famed Zurich Research Lab, home to four Nobel Prize winners are working on the future of water cooling -- taking a unique approach: instead of treating heat like the enemy, they're treating it like a precious commodity. Water is 4,000 times more effective than traditional air cooling. For the first time, IBM scientists are bringing cold water directly onto the chip itself. Piping hot water is then carried off of the chip and out of the system, where it can then be reused: to heat your home, the town swimming pool, for a hot shower or to cook a family dinner. This IBM Research project's goal is to create a new breed of computer capable of solving the world's toughest problems while at the same time creating a data center with zero emissions.
