"A rocket stove is an efficient cooking stove using small diameter wood fuel which is burned in a simple high-temperature combustion chamber containing a vertical chimney and a secondary air supply which ensures almost complete combustion prior to the flames reaching the cooking surface."
Rocket stoves are getting a lot of attention these days especially among permaculturist so I decided to build my own small prototype. With a little help from my friend, "Bear" this is how it turned out.

This one is built using fireproof bricks. Not really a rocket stove but still using the idea as the basis for my own design.
It was really easy and fast to assembly (about 5 minutes).
Once started it got hot very quickly and when the flames started to come up the chimney it was ready to use.

The design can be more advanced and many people incorporate mass heating in the stove efficiently. I've seen examples of stove having both stove, oven, mass heated bench and chimney in the end.
