Project Update: Laptop cooler

Intro:

The purpose of the project is to make a cooling system for laptops that can be portable. We are planning to design a fan cooling case for laptops. The problem is laptops get really hot this is a problem because it affects performance and it affects the computer’s components and lifespan.

We hope that your project will create a fan case that is both portable and fast cooling to stop computers from overheating.


Design Sprint Objective:

Next week we plan to:

  • figure out how to work out the new fans

  • We first will do some research on the fan’s website, online forums, or youtube

  • Then once we figured out how to make them work we use what we learn to practice

  • find a Circuit board where we can connect our fans to

Following week:

  • Do research on how to make a circuit board

  • Solder everything we need to make a circuit board

Progress Update and Insights:



Built a case out of cardboard







We successfully built a case made out of cardboard for 3 fans

This case has 2 stand in the middle that helps support the computer and help it not fall

This case built was successful and everything work

What we plan on doing next is finding the airflow this case produces.


Tested out the new FansThe problem with the fans is they don't spin.





We tried using the same ground, this didn’t work

We switched up the ports still didn’t work

What we plan to do is do research on their website, online, or youtube to figure out how to work the fans.


Build another cardboard case to fit the 4 fans





We successfully built a case made out of cardboard for 4 fans

This case has 2 stand in the middle that helps support the computer and help it not fall

This case has 4 big fans that create more airflow to the computer than the last case.

The problem with this is we need to find a way to connect all fans to a circuit board.
