While Texas summer can bring about images of vacations, holidays, and long, blissful days, let’s not forget that summer is also synonymous with heat! The high temperatures that we always experience during summertime are enough to drive even the sanest and rational person crazy. Luckily, there are a number of nifty inventions that are not only figuratively cool but will keep us literally cool too! When you find the heat too much this summer, you may want to see if you can procure a few, if not all, of these neat inventions that were specifically designed to beat the summer heat!
Wireless bed fan
The fun is taken out of summer nights when you’re stuck in bed sweating away. This invention of a sleek wireless bed fan is a great way to keep the bedroom from getting too hot, if you know what we mean. The great thing about this model is the design allows it to be unobtrusive, while still allowing it to do what it should. The fact that it is wireless also makes this machine very handy.
Popsicles are one of the most cost-effective ways to beat the summer heat, but your regular popsicles can prove to be a bit messy to eat, and even more difficult to carry around. This is where Zipzicles provides a solution. You can liken this invention to Ziploc bags, but they’ve been designed and sized in a way that is perfect for popsicles. All you need to do is fill them up, freeze them, and take them! Now you can have a popsicle on the go!
When you’re just about hopeless from the crazy heat outside, what do you do inside? You go on and turn on the air conditioning! Thanks to Willis Carrier, it has become possible to do this. The guy was credited for creating modern air conditioning back in 1902. He did this as a response to a quality control problem that the company that he was working on was experiencing at that time. He was able to come up with a device that would effectively control humidity, temperature, air circulation and even cleanse the air.
Ice cream maker
Besides popsicles, ice cream is also one of the most popular summer snacks. After all, its cheap, it’s yummy, and it’s cooling, so its definitely a win-win. Although we have all sorts of models available now, the very first ice cream maker was invented in 1843. The first model was small and had to be hand-cranked. Automatic ice cream makers did not come until much later.
There are plenty of ways to keep cool, and one way that most people will advise is by choosing the type of clothing that you wear during summertime. As a rule, it is always good to wear fabrics that breathe. Rayon is a perfect example because it is a semi-synthetic fiber that is made up of natural materials. While rayon is made from new and modern materials, which allows it to have more stretch, and even hold compared to other fabrics, it also has the benefit of resembling natural fabrics in its other properties, making it very light and easy to wear.
So there you have it, 5 great inventions that will take the temperatures down for you this summer. Be sure to have at least some of them so that your summer is fun, enjoyable, and most importantly, bearable!
