A company called Kronos Advanced Technologies is working on a method of removing heat from devices such as CPUs by using ionic discharge creating a fluid motion of air. This technology has been around for a few years and is used in products such as ionic air filters, which have no moving parts but still move volumes of air and create quite a strong breeze. The same concept is being applied to micro processor cooling.
