My partner Doug found this thermoelectric gizmo which sits on top of a woodstove and generates its own power to turn the fan blades that circulate warm air.  That means it'll work even if the power goes off and we can't run the electric blower.

We waaaaaaant  one.  This model seems like the best fit for the stove we have.

And yes, I mean gizmo.  Like the Tesla fluid valve, this seems to be a very simple device that capitalizes on physics to work efficiently -- something which is brilliant in design, rather than being extraordinarily complex.  Sometimes the great ideas are subtle ones.
