3D-printed Cool Brick cools a room using only water

The design firm behind this amazing innovation has proven they have an eco-friendly heart by using recycled materials in past projects. With this new development, they have married ancient technology with modern printing capabilities to answer the very serious question of how to reduce cooling costs as global temperatures rise. The 3D-printed ceramic bricks are based on evaporative cooling systems used as far back as 2500 B.C. With only water needed to provide a cooling effect, technology like this could eventually lead to slashing energy costs by reducing the need for expensive air-conditioning units.
