Portable Summer Appliances

This Two-in-One AC and Mini-Fridge Will Keep You Cool All Summer

— May 7, 2021 — Tech
The Fufu air conditioner is designed to keep you and your summer drinks cool. Doubling as an air conditioner and mini-fridge, Fufu's backpack size makes for a portable and small footprint device.

The tabletop cooling system uses two semiconductors that run simultaneously to balance energy and cooling functionalities together in an efficient manner. Dual exhausts on the back push hot air out from the conceptual design, which means it is best suited for window sides.

Its two-tiered mini-fridge can host up to 12 beverage cans. While Fufu is still only a conceptual design, the prototype will include a simple interface that gives users control over the air conditioning temperature, wind direction, wind speed, and an AC on/off switch.
