Evapolar is a personal space air conditioner

personal space air conditioner

We’re pretty spoiled when it comes to making our environment how we want it. Smart homes are amplifying this as thermostats like Nest won’t just cool you down, but will remember precisely the temperature you want to be at, and when. Being holed up in a place other than home for a week or more makes you wish you could have that level of comfort wherever you go.

While you can’t rely on having amazing AC units at every location you end up at, you could always bring your own with the Evapolar. This is a compact AC unit that uses a natural method of cooling to let you breathe easy when it’s hot out. It uses water to produce the equivalent of a calm breeze that will gently cool your body rather than the frigid shock of being able to turn the temperature in a room down to 65 when it’s well above 85 degrees Fahrenheit outside.

In addition to giving you cooler air in a 3-4 square meter space, it will also clean and humidify the air. It has a 27-40dB noise level, and will need its 750mL tank refilled with more water every 6-8 hours. The evaporative cartridge is made of mineral fibers to make sure that mold and bacteria won’t start throwing a party inside this machine. This is a $179 device that comes in white, blue, or black, with options for US, EU, UK, or AU adapters.
