After what feels like eighteen years of wind, rain, and snowfall, summer is nearly upon us, which will be nice for approximately 2.5 days before we realize we’re living in a sweltering hellscape and long once again for the respite of the chilly winter weather.

Most of human innovation is focused on tricking ourselves into thinking we’re not experiencing the environment we’re currently in. We want to be dry when it’s wet. We want to be warm when it’s cold. We want to be at home asleep when we’re at work writing blog posts. It’s life. Here are ten perfect, affordable inventions to help you escape the summer heat and beat this beautiful, horrid season once and for all.
