How hard would it be to invent a playground that used solar panels to keep it cooled in Arizona heat so kids could play and not get burned

They already have the technology available in Arizona as it has been in use in the middle East for centuries. There are some examples and more explanation in the link provided below.

There is also the passive down-draft cooling tower as described below .////// http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_chimney#Passive_down-draft_cooltower

Wow thank you, I guess now I should be asking why not use this system instead of putting on the news how many children are getting burned playing on hot structures

Not that hard... You'd first have to have a canopy over head then put solar panels on it, and have the energy fuel either a mister, cooling fan or both.

Would not be that hard all you would have do it make an "green house" type cover for it and install solar panels to run the AC.

That sounds like Bill Gate's kids playground.

Lol so true, but with all the money spent on frivolous things I was putting it out there to see if this could exsist, I guess it's not as important as news about children getting burned by play structures during the hot weather months, thanks for all of the feedback.
