The Mistbox is an air conditioner add-on that uses water mist to pre-cool your air conditioner. The contraption works to cool the air conditioner, increase its efficiency and subsequently, lower energy costs.

The device works by blowing a very fine spray of water into the compressor intake of the air conditioner. This pre-cools incoming air and increases the air conditioner's efficiency. In addition to this simple function, the Mistbox also optimizes its operation by gathering data from special sensors that monitor ambient temperature, sound, light and vibration, allowing it to release mist in the optimal amounts. It can be installed on existing air conditioners in just five minutes using the most basic tools.

Given that air conditioners are needed most on the hot days but are annoyingly the least efficient on such days, the Mistbox could prove to be a godsend.
