In this week’s ‘Crowdfunding Campaign Of The Week’ we feature the world’s first personal air conditioning system, Evapolar. This little cuboid is so cool, it could be your best personal talisman of sorts against the sweltering heat in Singapore.
Evapolar builds itself to be a personal air conditioner that simulates cool natural breeze, a humidifier for moistened air and a purifier which traps dust. No installation, mounting cradles or excessive assembling needed, just attach Evapolar to a power socket right out of the box. It is approximately one tenth the size of a regular air conditioner and weighs 1.68kg, making it easy to travel around with.
The technology behind Evapolar being able to cool faster and create a personal microclimate is its evaporative climate technology. This comes in the form of a special evaporative nanomaterial, which enables it to effectively and efficiently cool an area.
For the eco-conscious and green, you would be glad to know that the Evapolar is built not just with its end user in mind, but with the environment in mind as well. The Evapolar is 12 times more energy efficient as compared to a regular split system, which also directly correlates to your monthly electrical bill. Due to the technology used in the cooling system, there is no need for the use of Feon or other chemical coolants in order to function – which certain air conditioners still need to function.
For someone living in Singapore, Evapolar is a god send – especially since the heat wave we are experiencing this year just doesn’t seem to go away. Being portable is an extremely important plus point. However, it would be definitely be great if it could be powered with a battery of sorts so that it can be brought to use during picnics or by the beach.
