humidification from clothes dryer

Every winter, I spent a lot of time and energy using small room sized humidifiers to humidify my large greek revival in cold upstate NY.

At the same time, I am venting out warm humid air to the outside with my electric clothes dryer.

Question - hasn't somebody figured out a way to capture that warm hot air and put it to use instead of discarding it? I do have a cheap water-filled plastic gizmo which allows me to vent some of the air inside my house and manages to capture most of the lint. Within an hour, I can temporarily increase the humidity in my kitchen betweeen 8 to 10 percent.

Is there something out there which might do a better job?
