Introduction: Ice Box Air Conditioner
This gadget will save your life in the summertime!
Out of desperation, in the summer of 2002, I made this improvised "air condition" unit. 2002 was the warmest summer in years, and i almost melted!
This might sound like a joke, but it truly does work. You don't need to cool down the entire room to feel comfortable. Cooling down the air in your immediate suroundings is sufficent to keep your cool.
Read on to find out how to stay cool using scrap parts you probably have lying around already.

Step 1: Cutting Out the Parts
To make my air conditioner, i used:
1 2-liter ice box
2 ice box lids
1 80mm PC fan
1 fan grill
1 12 Volt transformer, or any other power source from 5-12 volts.
Step 2: Mounting the Nozzle and Fan
Step 3: Enjoy
Fill the container with ice. Or ice cream, if you like that vanilla aroma in the air :)
The temperature transfer happens at the surface of the ice, so the more surface, the colder the air will get. Ice cubes makes really great cold air, but melt fast. A solid block of ice doesn't get you that cool air, but can last for hours.
Hope this can save your summer too!
