Radiator Uses "Quantum Glass" To Heat Your Home

Those of us in cooler climates are familiar with the common hot-water radiator. It’s old-school, but it works. 5.5 Designers have decided they’re too good for wrought iron and steam (or rather their client Saazs has), and have instead put together this insane device, which uses a special coating (creating what they almost certainly mis-describe as “quantum glass”) to radiate infrared radiation whenever it’s given a current. That’s heat, my friend.

Oh, the sticks? Those are to prevent you from kicking it by accident and spraying hot glass all over the place.
