Invention promises 'eco friendly ice cooling' on a small scale

Ben Welter - Monday, August 01, 2016

Geizeer tabletop coolerTwo Italians have raised more than $310,000 in a successful Kickstarter campaign for a tabletop air-cooling unit.

The Geizeer consists of a wooden shell, a rechargeable battery, a fan and an ice pack filled with a nontoxic eutectic gel. Damiano Iannini and Ferdinando Petrella say their invention can lower the temperature of 12-square-meter room by 3 degrees Celsius for about 4 hours. They estimate the operating cost to be 1 cent per day. Each unit sells for about $95, with delivery promised in September.
