21 Innovative Air Conditioners

From Smartphone-Controlled Air Coolers to Water-Powered Air Coolers

— March 3, 2013 — Art & Design
Air conditioners are a great way to keep your home nice and cool during the intense summer heat, but with the advancement of technology, these products are becoming more convenient and hi-tech, and these innovative air conditioners are some great examples of how much these products have evolved.

Ordinary air conditioners are often big and bulky, and most likely have to be installed by a professional. These new and improved coolers however, are much more portable and easily accessible for anyone looking to find a practical way to cool their homes. From air systems that are controlled through your mobile devices to those that are conveniently powered by water, these inventive air conditioner designs are bringing these old school products back into the 21st Century.
