My husband is constantly trying to come up with some invention to make a million dollars. I can’t tell you how much he has spent over the last couple of years on gadgets; several failed inventions are lying around the house… His latest method for making it big is a portable air conditioner that you can take camping or anywhere that you may be. He bought some motors that are battery powered but has had many failed attempts so far. He wants to create something that is lightweight, portable, plus energy efficient. Most of the ones he has come up with are either cumbersome, noisy, or not really effective. I have watched him try a fail several times. I guess it is frustrating to him, I wish I knew a solution. Then the difficult thing about it is that there are already portable units on the market that he would be competing with as well. I even saw a small counter top one for dorm rooms that was pretty cute. Of course, no portable component that is that small will ever cool a big space, but, your immediate area would be comfortable. I think that my husband has higher aspirations for the portable cooler component he wants to design. He certainly thinks that he can come up with one that can do more that just cool the individual who is sitting next to it. I certainly hope that he is successful in his endeavours but I will be by him no matter what. If the A/C scheme doesn’t work out I am sure that he will come up with another plan.
