Guys, I'm sure that some of you will have come across those thermal vents that appear mostly in caves. They stick out of the ground and steam comes out of them.

 

You may have noticed that items can be placed on these similarly to the nodes at base or on vehicles. I was wondering if anyone knows what purpose these serve? Can they be used to power anything or ... ?

 

Thanks.

A recent patch fixed the ability to put things on them for now but you need to use a fresh save to get that bug fix. In the long run some sort of "power" device is likely intended for them.

May I suggest some kind of organic light bulb attachment for cave exploration?  It would greatly reduce the need for tethers.

Maybe a geothermal device? Since it is listed in their official wiki but no description yet

Yes, they will be used for the Geothermal reactor in the future (I think :P ).

Here's a video from a user who managed to craft and use it due a bug:
