This tiny glowing box is actually a portable personal air conditioner

Look, everyone in the office loves Martha. She’s always so nice and cheery, and she even picks up donuts for everyone a few times a month. That’s why nobody says anything when she cranks the heat up to 110 degrees. Everyone just sits there, quietly suffering in pools of their own sweat. What you might not know, however, is that there’s a way to make yourself more comfortable without upsetting Martha by politely asking her to lower the heat to a livable temperature. Check out the Evapolar Personal Air Cooler + Humidifier, a tiny glowing box that creates a nice cool “microclimate” covering roughly 45 sq ft.

Here are the key details from the product page:

  • Creates a Cool Personal Microclimate using natural evaporative technology, best for hot dry climates
