With an average summer temperature close to 100 degrees in Qatar, the folks working on World Cup 2022 are looking for ways to keep their cool. We love the latest: A local engineering teacher has revealed designs for an ‘artificial cloud’ that will hover over the pitch and cover everyone in a cooling shade.
Saud Adbul Ghani says the system would cost half a million dollars, and will be made of 100% light carbonic materials, fueled by four solar-powered engines. It will be operated by remote control and will fly high to protect direct and indirect sun rays to control temperatures.
One thing’s for sure: All the temperature talk should drown out any complaints about vuvuzelas.
