Lotus Air-conditioner / Air-conditioner

Lotus Air-conditioner
Lotus Air-conditioner

Lotus air-conditioner gets inspiration from the phenomenon that the lotus blooms by day and closes by night because it is associated with sun.The shape of it is like the lotus and it is made from a special temperature-sensitive rubber material,which has good flexibility.According to the principle of thermal expansion and contraction, it blooms and starts to release cool air when the room temperature is high. With the air temperature decreasing,it contracts gradually to reduce emission of cool air until the room temperature is low, then it closes. It will enter a circulatory system when temperature rises again like the periodic bloom lotus.
