Having issue studying in the heat?
Has your dorm room become super hot with no AC?
These were troubles faced by MIT electrical engineering first-year Andre Wood back in 2018. He had no AC in his room during the summer months, which made his room extremely hot to even sleep in.
“I knew I wasn't the only person suffering from this heatwave, my friends from other colleges were posting on social media about their unbearably hot dorms..."
"And that's the exact moment, a lightbulb kicked off my head, and I'd be thinking, 'What if I build an AC on my own?"
So I went on and created a small, portable AC myself.”
“Weeks later after my prototype was completed, it worked so great that my friends were all asking me to build one for them. I knew I was on to something bigger that could help out all students in the country.”
Andre’s portable AC has been a huge success that has relieved thousands of students suffering in their dorm rooms throughout the heating summer. It’s tiny enough to fit inside a backpack easily, plus it can be plug-in anywhere, anytime using a simple USB cable for its power source.
Most students are excited simply because it is 2x more efficient and cost-effective as compared to a regular AC. They save more money while cooling off faster. Also, it works so well that they consider going out of their dorms for warm-up after half an hour.
