Use This Japanese Trick To Expel The Hot Air From Your Car In Seconds

It’s summer all around the world and cars tend to get unusual hot during this time of year.
Here’s a cool trick on how to expel the hot in your car in seconds.

The vid is in Japanese with Chinese subtitles. Unless you speak either of them and you get the point by watching it, here’s the most important part – the clip explains that rolling down on for your car’s front windows and opening and closing the opposite door a handful of times will cool down your car’s interior with more than 14 degrees F (that’s about 8 degrees Celsius).

Here’s the scientific explanation based on the vid’s audio translation by Reddit user binarysolo: “What we’re doing here is to help circulate air by drawing the hot air out from the opening/closing door, and causing the cool(er) air to enter the car”. I tried it and it worked for me. Let me know your results in the comments ….

Do you have any other tricks to help quickly cooling down your car’s interior air in the hot summer days? If you do so, please share them in the comments.

GoodYear AMT Self-Inflating Tires
Goodyear AMT is an automatic tire pressure management system that makes sure you’re never caught off-guard by a pesky flat tire. Not only that, but the AMT also assures the tire pressure is optimal in order to help you improve your fuel economy, prolong the tread life and deliver an overall optimized performance.

The system features an internal sensor which, once it detects a lower than normal tire pressure, opens a regulator to allow air flow into a pumping tube actioned by the tire itself. Once the tire is back to it’s normal parameters, the regulator stops the pumping tube.

The technology is already “on the road” and Goodyear is in the last stages of testing before releasing the technology to the commercial fleet customers. Hopefully, everything will go as planned and we get to see this great technology on the consumer market as soon as possible.

The Mountain Monk - The Folding Mountain Bike Designed To Be Carried As A Regular Backpack

Built in the same spirit as the Mantague Paratrooper Folding Bike, the Mountain Monk allows easy storage and easy back transportation where the terrain does not allow you to ride it.

The bike system ingeniously folds and transforms into a compact backpack which allows mountaineers to climb, walk and hike their way and freely use their both hands for other activities. The Mountain Monk not only speeds your downhill, built also pretects your health from knee, hips, shoulders and other muscle injuries.
While walking downhill, our joints have to cope with several times the amount of our own weight – the legs have to slow down the downhill movement of the body with every step. And everybody knows the consequences: tired muscles and aching knees. Walking safely is not guaranteed anymore.[…] Studies show that 67% of all mountaineers have knee troubles, followed by injured ankles, hips, shoulders or even damages to the spinal column. Taking the “Bergmönch” with you, solves these problems, as you wheel downhill, taking care of your joints.” [extracted from the Mountain Monk press-release].

Let me hear your comments below. What are your thoughts in regards of the Mountain Monk foldable bike concept? Would you use one for your downhills or you’d prefer walking your way down when mountaineering?
