Beat The Summer Heat With This Japanese Capsule Toy

Ladies and gentlemen, we now have an air conditioner… for ants. Costing only 300 yen (US $2.75) is Stasto’s Capsule de Kaden The Cooler (In-Capsule Appliances-The Air Conditioner). This tiny A.C. requires no installation or maintenance fees, which, I guess, is pretty cool.

Some assembly was required, but… Everything snaps together, so there’s no need for glue, tape, or any other sort of adhesives.
… while quirky aesthetics are definitely a big part of the appeal, In-Capsule Appliances-The Air Conditioner is, ostensibly, functional too. In putting it together, you’ll notice that the components include trays, which you can fill with water…
..and stick in the freezer, turning them into little blocks of ice!
…and clip it to the face of a fan to produce, according to Stasto, a cool, soothing breeze.

What are your thoughts on this one?

If we lived like ants, we wouldn't need air conditioners, or heaters and our planet wouldn't be so close to being unable to support the unsustainable artificial lifestyle that we chose. 
When you don't force ants to live in glass boxes for your personal amusement, they will tolerate the heat far better than you would.
In the "wild" all animals and insects pick places to live that match their metabolisms. Many ants live underground, and in zones where the temperature under the ground drops within a few feet to 55F - and lower.
