“Delivered:” is a series in which we look at crowdfunded ideas that have successfully shipped to their supporters. We dive into the final product, after its long journey from concept to fulfillment.
Blo Technology has created an easy and effective way to cool off while I am on the go. The Blo is the first wearable cooling device and diffuser. It has two different clips that I simply attach to the back of my shirt, or the front. The device works like an ice cube cooling one area of the body that in turns allows the rest of my body temperature to drop. It cools me off very quickly lowering my body temperature within the first few minutes of use. I have enjoyed being able to continue on with activities that are in warm weather without having to stop to cool off.
Blo uses a small motor to create airflow, it has three settings Low, Regular, and Turbo. It has a rechargeable battery and usually lasts for 4-8 hours depending on the speed that I have it on. I can charge it quickly in only 1 hour and 15 minutes with the micro power bank charger. The light will turn blue when it has finished charging. With the fan and the peppermint as a cooling agent, it has twice the variables to keep me cool. The peppermint oil in the fan makes it feel much cooler, and I can also replace it with lemongrass oil to keep mosquitos away during the night. It is perfect for those warm summer nights camping outdoors.
I was very happy about the small size of the Blo cooling device. It makes it very easy to carry around with me. It is also small enough that I can attach it to my children’s shirts and comes in a variety of colors Black, Sky-blue, Royal Purple, and Pink for me to have them choose from. It would be nice to be take to theme parks to be able to keep myself and my kids resilient when it gets hot in the summer. I am also looking forward to using it on walks, or yard work in the summer when the heat is usually intolerable.
Blo is a great tool that makes cooling off easy without any extra effort of using a fan or spray bottle. It is easily rechargeable and can be used over and over again to keep me cool. It has made activities that are usually difficult in the heat more enjoyable. You view the Blo and hear more about their crowdfunded campaign by following the links below.
