In our hacking room, it was super cold because the AC was always on. And the sun was in my eyes.

What it does

It blocks the cold air and gives shade from the glare

How I built it

I covered the top vent with a cardboard from Ace Hardware. I then blocked the sun with a bunch of posterboards.

Challenges I ran into

It was hard to get on a chair and put the cardboard up on the ceiling and nudge it slowly into place. I also had to try many times before balancing the posterboards delicately on the railing.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

The first glare reducing posterboard felt amazing, since I could see again.

What I learned

How to build low budget solutions for real problems
