Imagine the following: you're watching a Little League game in the sweltering summer sun, you're golfing on a scorching day, or you're working in a hot environment. Or maybe you're experiencing hot flashes or just overheated in your own home. The heat may be affecting your comfort, enjoyment, and even your performance. But all is not lost. After taking your chilled Nano-Ice Cool Collar from your cooler or freezer, you put the wearable around your neck and feel instant relief.
The Cool Collar's effect is hands-free and long-lasting. The combination of the circular form-factor and the phase change material technology inside each sphere enables you to stay cool for up to three hours. Because only a small area of each sphere touches your skin, it enables a safe, slow melt without being uncomfortably cold. The unique liquid inside is made of a non-toxic organic fluid. When the liquid freezes, its ice crystals interlock in a more efficient way than those of water, making the cold last significantly longer than simple ice.The neck is an ideal spot for regulating temperature because it cools the blood in the arteries before reaching the brain.
As a company, social impact is important to us. Nano-Ice will be providing jobs locally to people in need. We are in talks with the Homeless Veteran's Association in South Boston as well as with Goodwill to ensure that our product is crafted locally by those who are under-employed. In addition, aid workers in Africa have tested the Cool Collar with positive results, so for every ten Cool Collars we sell, we will donate one to aid workers abroad.
See an example in video below of the impact this Cool-Collar has:

Risks and challenges
The potential problems we may face once we get funded are primarily around assembly. We've proven that we can maximize the amount of thermal energy we can compact into an ice ball. The challenge will be how to create a process for filling and sealing the balls and then sewing the cloth around the balls in the most efficient way. The sewing has to be done with as clean a stitching as possible and the balls cannot leak (though the liquid is an organic material that can even be swallowed). There will be a lot of experimenting with the most efficient way to produce these locally in South Boston with organizations such as Goodwill and The New England Association of Homeless Vets. We are confident that we can overcome these issues by reaching out to multiple organizations, even assisted living and retirement homes, as we are committed to providing jobs to those who otherwise may not be able to find work.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
