Can technology turn a plain old wood stove into a tech-laden heating option?

I didn't expect to be able to use the word "gasification" in writing about household wood stoves, but I got to do it in my column today, about a New Hampshire firm that's redesigning the cordwood stove as part of the Wood Stove Design Challenge, a national contest by an industry group called Alliance for Green Heat.

The idea is to make it more efficient and, more importantly, make it burn cleaner, producing less soot.It's got a graphical user interface, no less - makes the half-rusted metal box in my basement look kind of shabby.

Check out the column here.
