Sony’s Wearable Air Conditioner Is Finally Available to Help Make the Summer Less Sweltering #WearableWednesday
The Sony Reon Pocken is available now exclusively in Japan, Via Gizmodo
First revealed last Summer with an intended release to coincide with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Sony’s wearable personal air conditioner is finally available for sale to help you battle the summer heat when you occasionally step outside to brave the sun’s rage and the ongoing pandemic.
Working alongside a special t-shirt that suspends the device in the middle of your back just below the neck, the Sony Reon Pocket, which looks not unlike the Apple Magic Mouse, uses the Peltier effect to serve as a heat pump that promises to help cool the wearer’s body temperature by as much as 23 degrees Fahrenheit on hot days.
