New 'Sandia Cooler' Spinning Heatsink Technology On Gizmodo

"The Sandia Cooler was developed by the Sandia National Labs who do enough research to know a thing or two about how to effectively cool a computer. The most interesting aspect of the cooler is that it doesn’t attach directly to the CPU using thermal paste — which isn’t possible given it’s always spinning. 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."

At Mittoni, we believe we know a thing or two about CPU coolers & thermal technologies for computing in general. However, I haven't seen anything like this before!
