This portable device might be the answer to cooling you down in the heat

While there is nothing nicer than sitting out under a hot sun or swapping your home in a chilly climate for a tropical holiday, sometimes you just need to cool things down. Happily, plans are currently at an advanced stage for the launch of a portable air conditioning unit that will bring relief when temperatures rise beyond the comfortable mark.

Zero Breeze claims to be the world’s first portable, smart, multi-functional air conditioner that also functions as a bluetooth speaker, night light and smartphone charging station. It is capable of cooling a 50 square feet room down to 44 ℉, and can also be used in an outdoor setting as it comes with a battery pack.

The unit is lightweight and easy to use, and it has three settings – cool airflow, instant breeze, and regular fan airflow. There is an integrated bluetooth speaker that connects to your phone, so you can play music and adjust volume levels and skip songs straight from the device.

 

Another attractive feature is its warm LED light, which provides the perfect amount of illumination for camping and other outdoor activities.

The team behind the unit recently launched Zero Breeze on Kickstarter, and have already been pledged three times the $100,000 amount they requested to get the device on the market. If the company’s projections materialise as planned, the unit will be launched in March 2017.
