Snow in the desert thanks to Panasonic

It rarely snows here in Texas, but it does on occasion. We had a good four inches a week or so back for instance. One place it never snows would be in the middle of the desert in Bahrain. A project for Panasonic started with a request from a girl from its eco ideas contest that her brother get to see snow for the first time.

Panasonic used its high tech vacuum insulation to take a snowman and travel 5,314 miles with frosty to take the snowman to the little boy and his pals. The amazing part about this is that the snowman actually made the trip very well.

The insulation kept the snowman in one piece and when it was pulled out of the box the boy and his friends from school got to touch snow for the first time and even had a snowball fight in the middle of the desert.

“After the box was opened, we couldn’t just let the snowman melt away,” said Toshiya Inoue of Panasonic Japan, the supervisor of the experiment. Inoue continues, “So we invited Amna and Saleh and a group of kids from the local Abdul Rahman Kanoo International School to feel the snow, have snowball fights and make their own little snowmen. Mr. Snowman melted away, but I’m sure he will live on in the hearts of all those who met him.”
