Sony Reon Pocket: a wearable smartphone-driven mini air conditioner

From history, school textbooks and the stories of our grandparents, we know how cold the winters were,

when it was difficult to warm the house, even ifthere is a good stove at home. But we heard much less often about the heat, except in the context of the drought that destroyed the harvest. The same cannot be said about the last decades, which are simply strewn like garlands with temperature records in summer and winter, only now it is not cold, but, on the contrary, heat. This summer in Europe the temperatures are plus forty and above, there are anomalies all over the world, in some places at this time you almost need to put on a coat. In general, the weather is abnormally unstable, and I want to somehow protect myself from it. It is clear that we take an umbrella with us against the rain, but what should we take with us when the cold can be replaced by heat?

Wearable conditioner

Even a little help will always come in handy.

Interestingly, the Japanese are going to sell a mini air conditioner, complete with a high-quality T-shirt that matches any size. The whole kit will cost about 130 dollars.

At the moment the device is not ready forproduction, since the company launched a crowdfunding fundraising company (rather, it is a collection of material, marketing research, soil probing). So, Reon Pocket will appear on the market only if the company proves successful, and the consumer expresses his interest in a wearable climate system.
