It's been very hot of late in cargo-cult land, especially on the
streets, so the need to stay cool is a constant battle. It's also
important to maintain an exercise regime, and that obviously
creates a contradiction. This contrary set of aspirations are
by those who use the new Aircon
The rope itself is quite conventional, except for its ability to
a fine mist of cooling water for the person contained within the
skipping arc. It can do this because woven into its structure are a
of tubes punctuated by tiny holes that spray out water as a
consequence of the skipping action. The water is stored in a back-pack, with right and left feeder hoses connected by swivelling
to the skipping rope handles. It then makes its way along the
tubing to create the cooling bubble.
Works best when skipping on the spot, though with sufficient practice, a
walking action can be developed.
||The advanced version drives a pump, which forces coolant through a radiator and a compressor - or is it the other way around?
