I-Nano-Ice Cooling Necklace - yenza ubuchwepheshe obusha bomgexo obupholisa umzimba obusize izinkulungwane zabantu abahlushwa ukushisa.

USam White, Umsunguli we-Nano-Ice, LLC

Indaba yomsunguli/Yomnikazi nokuthi yini ebagqugquzele ukuthi baqale ibhizinisi

USam White wenzela umkakhe Lo Mgexo Opholisayo ngesikhathi behlala eNdiya. Wayehlushwa isimo sezulu esishisayo saseNdiya esingabekezeleleki. Babehamba ngaphandle odongeni lokushisa futhi wayefisa ukumsiza ukuthi athole impumuzo. USam ekuqaleni wayeye e-India eyokwethula isiqalo esihlukile esathuthukisa ubuchwepheshe obusha bokwenza abalimi bakwazi ukugcina isivuno sabo esibolayo. USam wathatha eziyisishiyagalombili kwezingasetshenzisiwe zamaphasela epulasitiki anesixazululo esisekelwe emanzini esasisetshenziswe kubalimi, wacela umthungi wezingubo emigwaqweni yaseMumbai ukuthi awathunge ngendwangu wayeseyinika umkakhe ukuthi awafake efrijini. Umgexo wenza umehluko. Ngakusasa wafika ekhaya ejabule kakhulu kangangokuthi ukupholisa kwathatha amahora amaningi! Ngaleso sikhathi uSam akazange akubheke njengethuba lebhizinisi kodwa lapho bebuyela eBoston, waqala ukucabanga ngokwabelana ngezinzuzo umkakhe ayezithola nabanye abantu.

Waqala ukuhlanganisa izingcezu ukuze adale ubuchwepheshe bokupholisa obugqokekayo elingena kumgexo oklanywe kahle wonke umuntu, abesilisa nabesifazane, angawugqoka ngokukhululeka. Umgomo we-Nano-Ice ukusiza abantu Beat the Heat ngesitayela nokusiza labo abahlushwa yizinkinga zokushisa ngempela. Namuhla, izinkulungwane eziningi zabantu zisebenzisa lobu buchwepheshe ezindabeni ezihlukahlukene ezihlobene nokushisa. I-Cooling Necklaces yenziwe ngezandla ngaphandle kwaseBoston, futhi ithuthukisa izimpilo zabantu abasemphakathini wendawo.

Ake sikhulume ngokuthi yini ebangela lokhu kusungulwa. Ubuchwepheshe obungaphakathi kwama- cooling sphere busekelwe emanzini okushintsha kwesigaba okubamba amanzi ngendlela esebenza kahle kakhulu. Uketshezi oluqandiswe ngaphakathi kwama-sphere we-Nano-Ice Cooling Necklace kuwukuthuthuka okuphambili kwemboni yokugcina amandla u-Sam asize ukuthuthuka e-India. Indlela esenza ngayo ukuthi umphumela wokupholisa uhlale isikhathi eside usekelwe kulokho okwenzeka phakathi nenqubo yokuqandisa; Amakristalu e-Nano-Ice ahlangana kahle kakhulu kunamanzi ajwayelekile ayiqhwa, okusho umuzwa wokupholisa omude kuwe makhasimende (bona umfanekiso ongezansi). Umgexo Wokupholisa we-Nano-Ice uhlala ubanda amahora angafika kwangu-2, kodwa ngisho nangemva kokuba amakristalu eqhwa ancibilika, uzwa umphumela wokupholisa ngoba intamo inesibopho sokulawula izinga lokushisa lomzimba futhi iyindawo ekahle yokupholisa nokuthola ukunethezeka okuphelele. Ama-sphere afriziwe apholisa amaphoyinti e-pulse entanyeni yakho futhi apholisa igazi eliya ebuchosheni bakho, ukuze imiphumela ihlale isikhathi eside ngemva kokuncibilika kweqhwa. 

Idizayini ilungele ikakhulukazi abantu abahambayo noma abafuna ukubeka unqenqema lwesitayela kulwazi lwabo lokupholisa. Kulula njengokuthatha Umgexo wakho Wokupholisa we-Nano-Ice uwukhiphe efrijini lakho uwugqoke entanyeni yakho ukuze ukhululeke ngokushesha. Uma uhamba ungasebenzisa isikhwama sesidlo sasemini esivalekile esine-Freezer pack ukuqinisekisa ukuthi umgexo uyabanda. Amabala okumanzisa isikhafu ngamakhemikhali amabi ngaphakathi ayinto yesikhathi esidlule. 

Izinselelo ibhizinisi/imakethe ebhekene nazo

Inselele enkulu u-Sam abhekane nayo yayisekelwe ekwenzeni inqubo yokukhiqiza isebenze kahle. Ngokwesibonelo, baqala ukusebenzisa omazibuthe ukuze babophe izihloko ndawonye. Inkinga yayiwukuthi babembalwa kakhulu abantu ababenethalente lokuthunga amaphethelo omazibuthe. Khona-ke, omunye wabathungi okwaba umklami, uLaura Alspaugh omangalisayo, weza kuSam nombono wokwenza iziphetho zibe zinde ukuze amakhasimende akwazi ukumane azibophe entanyeni, njengesikhafu. Lokho kwaholela emcabangweni wokusebenzisa indwangu yesudi yokugeza eyayinwebeka yomibili ukuze abantu bakwazi ukuyelula phezu kwamakhanda abo uma sebeboshiwe. Inzuzo eyengeziwe yendwangu yesudi yokugeza ukuthi ingomisa ngokushesha lapho kuvela ukujiya okuncane eqhweni elincibilikayo esimweni sezulu esiswakeme. Inkinga enkulu elandelayo kwakuwukugcwalisa ama-sphere angenalutho ngoketshezi oluyimfihlo abaludalile olugcina amandla amaningi okushisa. Ekuqaleni, basebenzisa inaliti ukuze bagcwalise ngamunye ngamunye. Khona-ke unjiniyela okuthiwa u-Lael Odhner, umsunguli we-Right Hand Robotics, wasikisela ukuba kusetshenziswe isivalu ngaphakathi kwegumbi elicindezelwe ukuze kugcwaliswe ama-sphere angu-50 ngesikhathi esisodwa. Lokho kwenze iNano-Ice yakwazi ukukala inqubo yokukhiqiza ngokushesha okukhulu. 

Manje njengoba uhlangothi lokukhiqiza lwebhizinisi seluphelile, indaba yaba ukuthi ubani ofuna lokhu? Lapho eqala, uSam wayeqiniseka ukuthi imakethe yayizoba izisebenzi zokwakha, abavukuzi nabapheki. Lapho ebuza izinhloko zamaqembu okwakha, zonke zathi zizosiza ngempela. Ngemva kwezinyanga eqondise lezo zimakethe, wabona ukuthi umgexo wawuphazamisa kakhulu lapho begxile emsebenzini wabo. Lokhu kwakuwumthamo onzima weqiniso. USam ufisa ukuthi azinikele emsebenzini wokwakha isonto lonke ukuze athole ngokushesha. Uma lezi zisebenzi ezazivaleleke esimweni sezulu esishisayo zingazidingi, ubani owayezidinga ngaphandle komkakhe?

Amathuba ibhizinisi/imakethe ebhekene nawo

Ngemva komkhankaso wakhe we-Kickstarter oyimpumelelo, u-Sam waqala ukuthola impendulo kubantu abanezinkinga zokuzivikela komzimba ezifana ne-MS (Multiple Sclerosis) noma i-POTS (i-Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome), lapho ukushisa kuletha izimpawu zabo ezibucayi. U-Sam wayethola imilayezo ecatshangelwayo emangalisayo mayelana nendlela umgexo wakhe opholile oziguqule ngayo izimpilo zabo. Abaningi babo babebhajwe ngaphakathi, besaba ukuthi ukushisa kuzoletha izimpawu ezengeziwe. Futhi manje, ngokokuqala ngqá, base bengakwazi ukuhamba ngaphandle bephethe Umgexo Wokupholisa futhi ngeke babe nezimpawu ababezesaba kakhulu. Kuphinde kwaqala kwacaca ukuthi abesifazane abaningi baqala ukusebenzisa Imigexo yokupholisa ukuze banciphise ukushisa okushisayo. Abesifazane abanenkinga yokunqamuka kokuya esikhathini bangathola ama-hotflashes ngisho nasezindlini zabo ezine-airconditioning kanye ne-Cooling Necklace izovimbela izimpawu. Babengeke baphinde bayolima engadini ngaphandle kokwesaba ukuthi ukushisa kwakuzobenzani. Kusukela ngaleso sikhathi, uye wathola amanothi amaningi ajabulisayo amtshela ukuthi into ayisungulile iye yayithola zashintsha izimpilo zabo

Izeluleko kwabanye mayelana nokuqala ibhizinisi

Ezimweni eziningi, ukuphikelela kubaluleke kakhulu kunekhono. U-Sam udlule ekuphindaphindweni oku-12 okuhlukile kwe-form-factor lapho nje ubuchwepheshe obungaphakathi sebuphelele. Kufanele ibe nkulu kangakanani i-sphere ngayinye? Kufanele ube yini umbala wobuhlalu? Ingatholakala kuphi impahla eluhlaza? Yiziphi izitayela zamanje zemibala yezesekeli? Lezi ziphetho ezimbili zingaxhuma kanjani entanyeni? Umfuziselo wokuqala ngqa kwakuyisigqoko se-baseball esasineziyingi zokupholisa ezilenga ngemuva! Kwakunezikhathi eziningi ayefuna nje ukuyeka, kodwa lapho esethole leyo ncwajana yokuqala yokuthi yayishintsha kanjani impilo yomuntu, waqhubeka. Kwakubalulekile ukugubha ukunqoba okuncane, njengokuthola umbala wokuqala wendwangu. Yilezo zinto ezincane ezamenza wakwazi ukulondoloza isimo sengqondo esihle. Ukuphikelela kuyikhambi lekhono kulesi simo.

Uma kukhona okukodwa okuthathwayo kokuhlangenwe nakho kuka-Sam, kuhlangothini lamakhasimende langaphambi kwesikhathi lebhizinisi. Uphakamisa ukuthi ngenxa yokuthi abantu abasembonini ethile (efana neyokwakha) bakutshele ukuthi okusungulile kungaba kuhle, sheshe ukwazi ukubona uma kungeyona imakethe elungile futhi zungeza ngokushesha. Akulula ukukuqonda lokho. Abantu abaningi bafuna ukuba nomusa uma ubalethela umbono omusha onesasasa lezwi lakho. Futhi ezimweni eziningi abantu bazokutshela ukuthi bangayithanda. Kodwa ukuhlolwa kweqiniso yilapho uqala ukubakhokhisa imali. Ingabe babezoyikhokhela? 

Thembeka kuwena uma ubuza ukuthi, “bengingayikhokha yini ukube bengiyilowo muntu”? Futhi uma usuyitholile impendulo, ungesabi ukushintsha inkambo ngokushesha.

Ekugcineni, i-Kickstarter yavela kubantu ababeyidinga kakhulu, futhi lokho kwaba yinhlanhla. Ngezinye izikhathi inhlanhla ibaluleke nakakhulu ukuthi ukuphikelela! 

Sithemba ukuthi ukufunda ngalolu hambo kuwusizo.
