Inspired by: Searching for real, viable and cost effective technologies that will help people live better lives, and with much lower environmental costs. I love the K.I.S.S approach, take a good idea and distill, and refine it, and do it again and again, until it is truly minimal and doable.

Solutions to climate change that involve reverse cycle air conditioning (cooling and heating) will not be adopted unless they are affordable to all the people of the World. My invention is cheaper, safer and better, it is K.I.S.S, and it inspires me, so I hope it inspires others and that they will adopt this.

It is estimated that air conditioning will contribute up to 0.5C of the global warming, I want Swirl AC to reduce that to as close to zero as possible. This need really inspired me.
