Egloo: Smart heater working without electricity

d1
Could you ever imagine you can heat your room without electricity? No you didn´t. Now Egloo makes it possible. Egloo is smart little heater that harnesses candle power to heat your room without electricity.  The concept was developed by Marco Zagaria, a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. 



The concept: 

Egloo is composed by four elements: the base, the grill and the two domes. The base offers a space for the positioning of the candles that, once you light them up, will warm the domes up. There is a metal grill placed on the base, serving as a support for the domes. It makes a space to let the air in, necessary for the combustion of the candles. For the well-functioning of the Egloo only four candles are needed. With an average duration of five hours they are enough to warm up a 20mq environment. The thinner dome, placed centrally on the base, stores a high rate of heat, that is conveyed to the external dome; the dome’s air intake facilitate the outgoing of the warm air stored between the covers, allowing thermal exchange with the environment.
