Crowdsourcing Mornings: InstantCool: The Wearable AC Unit For Outdoor Use

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Summer is coming! Are you prepared for the heat waves outside when air conditioning is not available? Meet InstantCool vest, a cost-effective alternative to portable AC unit that uses NASA-developed technology to cool you with ice water circulated from the reservoir via a high-efficiency battery powered pump.  InstantCool provides the wearer with consistent, continuous relief from heat stress at an affordable price, it can beat the heat in 10 seconds and is the best choice for a wide variety of people who work and play outdoors.

If you need to wash the vest, you just need to pull out the plugs, remove the ice box and the water pump, and pull out the USB port and the mobile power bank. You can do it in less than 30 seconds. It is super easy and prevents odors compared to other cooling vests on the market.  InstantCool Heavy Duty replaces the ice boxes with a high volume insulated bottle and a backpack so that it can work continuously for about 2-4 hours without the need to replace the ice boxes. It is heavier, but with the design of the backpack and the extended tube, you can leave the insulated bottle near you instead of carrying it around.

As of May 24th, this project has raised $50,000 of their $20,000 goal. This project has 15 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $119, you will get one InstantCool vest.  For a pledge of $219, you will get two InstantCool vests.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
