What if there was a way to cool your home, car, or workplace without the need for a big, loud, and energy-hungry machine? What if this device also was entirely solar powered with no moving parts? Sound to good to be true?
This Instructable will cover the method I used to build a prototype Solar Air Conditioning Unit. This unit is a prototype, and was only ever meant as a proof of concept that my idea could work. There is a lot of testing that needs to be done to see how this idea can be used in more practical applications.

.:| This Instructable was intended to be entered into the Green Technology Contest. However, because this project uses no electronics, it was not accepted. I entered this into the Hurricane Laser Contest instead, and if you like this Instructable, it would be awesome if you would vote for it in the contest! Having a laser cutter would be awesome because it would allow me to build things better and more quickly to be able to share them with the community! |:.
