If you don’t have air conditioning at home or work, this heat wave is a nightmare. The evaSMART Smart Personal Air Conditioner offers instant relief—this smart device cools the air around you, providing a comfortable microclimate. It also removes particles from the air and adds humidity. You can get it now for $192 at the PopSci Shop.
Compared with most “portable” air conditioners, the evaSMART is incredibly compact. This device is easily small enough to run on your desk or nightstand. It’s also very energy efficient, meaning you can run it from any USB power supply.
Using evaporation technology, the evaSMART can reduce the local temperature down to a chilly 59.3°F (15.2°C). The device is powerful enough to cool 32 square feet (4m2) and the companion smartphone app gives you full control over the fan speed.
Aside from cooling the air, this air conditioner also improves the air quality. A built-in filter helps to scrub pollution, which is great news for folks with asthma or allergies. In dry conditions, the evaSMART can even increase the humidity in your home or office.
It’s normally $256, but you can order the evaSMART air conditioner now for $192.
