Today i was starting to make fan blades and accidentally found out how to make this amazing... fan... air conditioning... thing!!! It actually works very well; better than i thought it would. It literally took 1 minute to make, and thats only because I didn't think I was going to make this, so I was being very careful when drawing the lines. ( I don't know if the way I word my sentences is correct. I apologize if they aren't; I'm just very exited to post this instructable!!!) 

Well, i don't want to keep you guys reading forever, so I will go on with the show.

Step 1: Step One: What You Will Need

1. A two liter soda bottle
2. Scissors
3. A marker ( if you want)
4. Ice
<p>Not as simple, but it works! </p><p><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Too-Hot-Remove-heat-from-your-body-with-the-Back-/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/Too-Hot-Remove-hea...</a></p>
<p>This is a good idea for a hot summer day. I know it can be kind of expensive to use a/c in the summer, but this is a good option. You still get enough a/c to cool off, but you don't go broke. I'll have to try this next summer. <a href="http://www.airconbydesign.net.au" rel="nofollow">http://www.airconbydesign.net.au </a></p>
Did not cool anything at all, not even the hand i was pumping with. Cool idea and easy design but i haveto say that it is totally useless....
cool.. go ahead and create more instructables !! cheers <br>
This is a great, but simple idea. I love it. <br> <br>Great instructable
Or you could just squeeze it...
so the cool air comes from pumping up and down? if you stop pumping (I mean, what if you're going to bed) there'll be no cool air any more?
hey its a gravity bong lol
977 btus/lb of ice.<br>Average a/c 24,000 btus/hr.<br>heat generated by pumping action means this device will probably make you hotter.
i don't know about that. if it does, its unnoticeable. the immediate effect of the cooled air actually feels pretty cool. now, i may be wrong though.
Great Idea! I am going to try it tonight before I go to bed. ; ; I have a fan going at night. <br>
NICE! Great idea!
This is very creative!
thank you!
that would be great for camping in the summer, because if you were really hot, u can go in the tent and use it. cool idea!
would it work to stick a fan unside of it?
yeah, it should. like if you put a small desk fan, or found out how to wire a computer fan over it. thats a really good idea!
The light of discovery is a wonderful thing.
yeah it is!!
What do you do when you're done?
you kinda pump it. like grab the part where you screw the top on, and slide it up and down.
And then? Could you provide a video?
thats all there is to it. i added some pictures on the last step. if that doesn't help, then i will try to fix my video camera and do a video.
did it help?
Yeah! It works really well!
