It's really hot outdoors in summer or in tropical areas. When travelling to countries with warm and humid weather, it has always been a hot and sweaty experience travelling by foot and we have always wanted an effective solution for this problem. On the market, there are some small and portable cooling fans but they are mostly weak or not portable enough to meet our needs.
So we design a new cooling tool based on a drone. You don’t have to use a controller to control the drone to fly. All you need to do is to pull the string of the drone and the drone will hover above your head to provide you with powerful cooling. It's just like dragging along a balloon that happens to cool you down at the same time.
How it works
Tonbo is small and easy to carry along with you. Tonbo's frame is designed to be folded flat and can be put into a bag easily.
Tonbo is equipped with 4 high power brushless motors that works hard to provide powerful cooling for you.
- Integrated Camera:
Tonbo can be customised to equip a camera which enable you to capture your journey in timelapse.
- It's your personal flying pet!
Risks and challenges
This current prototype still has a few problems and we are trying to solve them one by one. The technical gap between our ideal product and our prototype is something we are still working on. To be specific, we are trying to reduce the noise produced by the fan blades and find a better way for Tonbo to track and follow the user. Also, we are still experimenting with ways for user to control Tonbo without complicating the user experience. It is one important fact which prompts us to put forward this campaign, that to better customize our product to your needs and wants! So if you have any suggestions for the project please feel free to leave some comments for us!
We admit that this is a risky project, especially when we are a new start-up. Customers may have doubts toward the performance or the feasibility of our concept. But we can ensure you that we do all these out of our passion and we would love to have you as our backer as well as a friend.
