Homegrown AC

By ayr September 2, 2010

You’re just looking at the picture and you know I’m getting excited. It’s not the first time I’ve posted an image of home-grown technology. I need to put a new category on the website for this type of thing.

So what you’re looking at here is the invention of Mick, a new friend who is helping his wife Diane get a cupcake truck running here in Boston. You can check them out alongside us at SoWa on Sundays (but not this Sunday because the market is closed for the holiday).

That’s a cooler filled with ice. And a fan. And an exhaust stack. And a car battery. The fan blows air through the ice, the ice cools the air, the cool air keeps the cupcakes from melting. Isn’t that awesome?
