About

BACK US AND RECEIVE THE COOLNADO IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS! COOLNADO IS TRULY A ONE-OF-A-KIND GIFT!

 

Coolnado™ is the first and only stand-alone hardware specifically designed to cool and dry your sweaty hands while you work or game on your computer and gaming console. 

We designed Coolnado with Gamers in mind by making Coolnado aesthetically sleek and by integrating colored LED lighting to match your gaming rig for PC Gamers or your tastes for Console Gamers. You can choose any color available for Coolnado and plug Coolnado into any USB port or a wall outlet for power with any standard usb wall power adapter. 

Coolnado is great for console gamers!

Is Coolnado just for Gamers? No!

During testing we found that many people who use the computer for an extended period experienced sweaty palms and discomfort associated with extended use and found significant relief from using Coolnado.

Coolnado is the perfect relaxation break for your tired hands!  

Coolnado is not only perfect for Gamers but also:

  • Office Workers who use the computer extensively
  • Programmers or Computer Professionals
  • Secretaries and Receptionists
  • Anyone who uses their computer for extended periods

Coolnado has been called soothing, relaxing, an air spa for your hands!

Coolnado will come in different LED colors.

Coolnado is a patent pending product using Directed Airflow Technology which allows for maximum cfm (cubic feet per minute of airflow) with the minimal amount of noise. 

Coolnado was designed and redesigned until it fit the perfect aesthetic and shape to produce the optimal amount of airflow to quickly dry most sweaty hands in under 5 seconds so you can quickly get back in the game or get back to your work. 

The design is not only beautiful, it's functional! The Coolnado engineering team designed many fully functional housing shapes to determine which provided the maximum airflow and provided the most noise muffle. In the end, the current design of Coolnado won out and provides the perfect combination of form and function.

Coolnado is USB powered and uses maximum efficiency in converting USB's limited voltage into enough energy to power and sustain an airflow system with enough force to get the job done. 

We introduced Coolnado to the Internet and this is what the Internet said...

The Internet seems to love us

 We took the Coolnado to a Gaming Convention in Texas and got great feedback:

 

The design for Coolnado took over a year and resulted in a number of prototypes and redesigns. Here are some of the rejected designs and prototypes.

The Proof of Concept (The first design)

The first Coolnado began with a need - the creator of the Coolnado is a PC gamer and wanted a product that alleviated the problem of sweaty hands while gaming but also looked cool. 

The Proof of Concept design was actually a baby monitor which was gutted and reconfigured to become the first Coolnado.

The Evolution of the Aesthetic and Fit (The rest of the designs)

The Proof of Concept Coolnado did exactly what it was intended to do: prove that the concept of a personal hand cooling and drying peripheral was not only feasible but also worked. Success! Now, we needed to make the design appeal to the masses and refine the design to maximize cfm while reducing noise and power requirements. 

We tried a spherical shape but couldn't achieve the cfm (cubic feet per minute) of airflow that we desired

We even tried a "hockey puck" design and designs aimed at replicating the contours of the hand.

Risks and challenges

Technical Challenges: The technical challenges in producing Coolnado are typical of any new product. When creating a new product, real world testing for mass consumption is always limited and filled with incomplete data. While we feel that we have tested Coolnado fully to ensure that it works in all situations it was designed to, there may be unforeseen challenges with compatibility. If your Coolnado fails to work as advertised due to compatibility issues, we will be available to ensure that you are fully satisfied and offer a full refund if warranted.

Transparency: The Coolnado Team is dedicated to the promise to keep our backers up to date via Kickstarter and ensure that we keep our backers informed every step of the way. If there are any changes made during the final development and manufacturing process, we ensure that all of our backers will be notified ASAP.

Delivery: Shipment of all pre-ordered Coolnados will begin on the date shown barring any unforeseen circumstances that delay production or shipping. We prefer to get it right and ship you the best product we can produce and while we will be working diligently to ensure that we hit our target ship date, we also know that there may be situations beyond our control and this may warrant future adjustments to the delivery date. Any changes will be communicated to our backers immediately via Kickstarter.
