    Not sure if this is a joke or something that may actually work. Most of us have all the components lying around.

    Why not use a peltier chip to cool and maintain the water?

    Or 2 or 3...

    It's a little more complex but you don't require such a large device. If you put some thought into it you could really make one small enough to fit in your hand.

    I have a bunch of peltiers lying around at home and I have one hooked up to a gpu heatsink and supplying 12V to it freezes water in a few seconds...

    Attached is a basic idea
