He Couldn’t Afford an Air Conditioner, So He Made This $8 Cooler Instead. Brilliant!

Now don’t you think that’s a really cool invention?

As much as I look forward to summer season, the idea of enduring the unbeatable heat really upsets me. Surviving extremely hot days means turning on the air conditioner 24/7 which leads to higher electricity bill by the end of the month. Just the idea of it is making me sweat like a pig right now.

This is why Household Hacker came up with a good alternative for expensive brand new air conditioners. For only $8, they were able to create a make-shift air conditioner using a $4- styrofoam cooler, dryer vents which cost $2, an old but functioning electric fan, and frozen bottles of water.

According to the video tutorial, the temperature of the house dropped from 78 degrees to 60 degrees after running the make-shift conditioner for a couple of hours. Now don’t you think that’s a really cool invention?

Beat the heat using this $8-air conditioner!

Japanese Show Demonstrates How To Prepare Kids For School In Less Than 5 Minutes!

Waking, dressing and even preparing a fresh bento box in less than five minutes! This mother-and-son duo will show you how!

For parents, waking their kids up every morning is very challenging. Some kids won't get up from bed with a simple call or shake, and for parents, especially mothers, it is frustrating because they still have a lot of chores to do, and would want to expend their energy on other things than wake up ridiculously sleepyheads.

In Japan, a television segment called Jitan Seikatsu Gaido Shou (時短生活ガイドショー), aired by Tokyo Broadcasting System, or TBS features all kinds of ways to save time.

In one episode, they presented a mother-and-son duo who showed the audience how to prepare for school in less than five minutes! It is pretty hilarious and although the entire setup may not be applicable to all homes, we are sure that you can get valuable ideas just by watching this amazing video!

Creative Team Designs Awesome Superhero Murals in Their Office Using 8,024 Post-its!

Okay, I’m on my way to buy post-its!

By

Tired of those boring, bland, and lifeless walls in your office? You are not alone, buddy.

Most of the average office spaces that people work in feature white or gray walls. If you're having a particularly busy day, or inevitably, an annoyingly bad day, these lonely walls just add up to the dark mood. At some point in your life, you must have thought that a little color just won't hurt.

Ben Brucker probably thought the same thing. Ben and his team work at a creative agency, which is kind of ironic because the walls of their office didn't quite look creative. They decided to change this once and for all, so they came up with a brilliant idea for a wall decoration. They took the idea to their boss, who immediately approved their proposal and gave them a $300 budget.

What was their idea? Post-its. More than 8,000 pieces of colored post-its. Who knew these things can be used for this purpose?...
