meh.. if the ice comes from a fridge in the same apartment, then you will be adding heat in your home. Not a big amount, but still this doesn't make much sense
This is a picture of one I made, basically like the instructions except the air goes in through the top and is pushed out through holes on the front at the same level as the ice. I aimed it towards my mouse and keyboard and even though the fan is fairly low powered, it already feels nice after 5 minutes. BTW, I made this in around 30 mins with: a salsa container, a cpu fan, an old apple charger cord (usb), and a drill for the holes. I also used some masking tape to hold on the fan b/c I was lazy.
i have designed a similar version inspired by it that uses an arduino chip ATMega8
and controls the fan speed according to the amount of external temp.
it also warns that ice is melting , etc...
it also has a lcd display and humidity centre and is fully automatic and also monitors the battery level and recharges automatically when plugged in the socket..
it runs on 9 v dc...
it is so auto-cool.............................
