On its face, an air conditioner you'd use in any outdoor space is a little absurd. Even setting aside environmental concerns, if you saw someone using one on the beach, you might have a lot of questions. Like, "Why?"
Any air conditioner salesman worth their salt would say a fan in your garage is just going to blow the hot air it's surrounded by. But a portable air conditioner! That, my friend, blows cold air. Here's my card.
Even after a great sales pitch from your neighborhood's traveling salesman, it'd be fair to wonder if anyone actually wants a portable air conditioner. For that, Coolala has an answer. Its new solar-powered portable air conditioner is blowing up on Kickstarter where it has more than doubled its $25,563 goal with 37 days remaining in its campaign.
