The sofa works just like a split AC and the hand rest part of the sofa can be used to control the air flow.


The safe can run on a fan mode. One can increase/decrease the temperature and it consumes 10% less electricity than a normal AC tower.

What this man has done has put Gujarat on the block and shown how we can also be the hub for creating something unique and useful. Kudos to the students of NID who used their ideas and designs to help this man achieve his goal and surprise the nation with his brilliant idea and execution. We are assuming that the sofa would usually be used in offices and high end apartments. We are waiting for it to hit the market so that we at least get a chance to give it a look. Very well done!
