Get Ready for Summer ②


Continued from the previous post (Get ready for summer ideas part 1), here are two more super items that might make your summer comfortable.

1. Turn a regular bike into a motor-assisted one!

Geeks member “Yanchi。” started thinking about a converter that would make a traditional bike into a motor-assisted one when he witnessed his coworker was still riding a “no longer assisted, motor-out-of-order" bike (which means it was just an extra heavy bike).  He is hoping to make a very affordable gadget made of motors that would sandwich the rear tire to assist the ride.  

Riding a bike is a good exercise, (yes, we all know that!!)  but doing so in hot summer could be tiresome.  If we can snap on and off this gadget easily, we can convert a bike into an assisted one seasonally or  even only on the way back home after regularly riding  a bike to the destination.

You might don’t get as much power as a regular pricey electric bike, but just feeling a little push from this would save some sweat in hot days.

2. Eco-Friendly Fan Cooled by Frozen Bottled Water

Creating your own comfortable zone using frozen bottled water was posted by Geeks’ member, “JVSPRW”.  A/C setting at work might be too warm for you, but your co-workers seem OK with the temperature.  You don’t need to lower the whole room temperature, so with this fan, you can produce comfortable space only for the surroundings just around you.

It looks stylish, and it is, of course, eco-friendly.  “JVSPRW”, please update us how you have been moving forward with your fan!
