An oldie but a goodie! Does anyone know what this is called?

I remember seeing this a long time ago:

I think there was an article about it, but I can't remember. Does anyone know what it's called? It'd be very useful for cooking bacon at your computer desk.

I think that was a Tomshardware article about it. Premise is to try and use one of the cup of noodle USB warmer to actually cook something. Plate is a 5v Peltier with a fan and/or heatsink on the other side. Hence why they are using 30 USB ports at 5w each, so 150watt total. I don't believe it worked.
