Under the waves near the shoreline of the Orkney Islands, a metallic cylinder that could be mistaken for a torpedo sits on the seabed. Meanwhile, row after row of server racks sit deep underground in a disused Norwegian mine; despite the heat they emit, the temperature remains cool thanks to the proximity of a nearby fjord. In Finland, households receive respite from the freezing winter due to heating generated as a waste by-product of technology hardware.
