Solar-Powered Air Conditioner is a Great Idea, in Theory

Illustration for article titled Solar-Powered Air Conditioner is a Great Idea, in Theory

The oddly-named "Psychro-ray" is a solar-powered air conditioner for your car. It's just a concept, and something tells me that there's no way solar power alone could power something as power-hungry as an air conditioner with a " carbon filtration system and electrostatic dust collector," but hey, I like the way you guys are thinking. Once reality catches up with these designers the world is gonna be a great place, let me tell you. [Yanko Design]

It must only be a fan, and not an actual cooler; which is something that's been around for quite a while. Not an entirely bad idea, since car interiors here (where it hits 120˚ in the summer) can easily hit 175+˚ within ten minutes of parking, and leaving enough of a gap to get any air movement usually means someone can get their arm in the window.
