Not sure I'd use it much when motorhoming, but if you could scale it up it might have many more uses.

Charging your electric bike by the fire pit? Very Happy

Seems a cool product. I wonder if anyone has used one of those little solar chargers to keep their phone charged. Seems like could attach one their bacpack and keep the phone charged while hiking.

Our local outdoors shop has them already incorporated into a backpack. Much lighter and more light-weight camper friendly than this device, ingenious though it might be !

So anyone any thoughts on what technology is being used here?

It looks like the heat from the fire may be turning some sort of archemedes type spiral to create a generating source motion. I know he used it for water but it may well work for hot air.

I thought it must be some sort of forced hot ar turbo fan but a bit of googling suggests it is a thermoelectric generator which is a solid state bit of kit using the "Peltier Effect".

Have a look
