Cool-Cocoon (Air-con bed)

Published on August 2, 2016 um 08:40

Explain your idea in details:

The use of using the air-conditioning to cool down the room uses too much electricity. It is not necessary to cool down the whole room when the person is sleeping. So why not just cool down only your bed ? Smaller volume requires lesser electricity to cool down. Many tropical countries is warm and humid even it is at night. So our this idea will save electricity and at the same time provide comfort while the person is sleeping. The objective of the project is build a "cool-cocoon" bed that can be easily installed and folded when not in used. The total consumption of the power used is only about 20% as compare to cooling down whole room. The structure of this "Cool-cocoon" is designed in the way it is very suitable for use in the room too.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Our target: Reduced electricity consumption (up to 80 percent). This in term will reduce electricity bill and fuel burned to generate electricity. The overall effect is that help to save the environment and save cost.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

We design the project such the parts used are easily available in the market and these parts can be purchase online from websites such as This reduces the cost of manufacturing and it will be very easy for maintenance as the replacement parts are easily available and low cost.

We plan to share our idea via in order to raise support and funds to start our own company. We also thinking of pitching our ideas to venture capitalist to consider our project for financial support and collaboration.

Our aim is to make this product as low cost as possible so that many people can afford to buy this product. This will help to reduce their electricity bill and thus benefit the environment.
