Qatar Engineers Designing Remote Control Cloud

By LCR Contributor Barrell Rider

Recently the United States was once again beat in soccer. Not on the pitch mind you, but by losing their bid to host the 2022 World Cup.

The victor in the bidding is the tiny nation of Qatar, which is roughly the size of Connecticut. One must be a huge soccer fan to make the trek to Qatar for the games.

The World Cup takes place in July, a time of extreme temperatures and no shade in Qatar. But Dr Saud Abdul Ghani, head of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Qatar University, unveiled a design and construction of an artificial cloud to shade and cool the stadiums. The concept is quite cool, figuratively and literally speaking. The cloud is solar powered and remotely operated.

Not sure if the design will come to fruition, but if it does it could be used globally for various sporting events and outdoor activities like concerts and fairs.
