Calling all clothes dryers! Retrofit and save energy.

Probably the best and simplest invention I've seen in a while. A kit to retrofit your existing clothes dryer to save energy. Current dryers push air past wire coils (electric) or a heat exchanger (gas) to heat up the air that goes into the dyer to dry your clothes. This kit heats up an oil filled radiator which then the air is passed through. It is about twice as efficient in terms of heat transfer. Check it out DryerMiser™
I will admit that their website is horrible and their ecommerce store needs help. But if they can get their act together with their marketing, I predict that this company will be able to go very far. Here's hoping to a simple product that could save tons of energy for us all.
