Sony’s Wearable Air Conditioner

Funded through a successful crowdfunding campaign, the electronics giant Sony is working on a wearable air conditioner that slips in the back of a shirt. Sony is calling the device the Reon Pocket, which is able to lower the temperature on your back by as much as 24 degrees Fahrenheit.

The device cools by using the peltier effect and has a reported battery life of 2 hours. Although the battery life won’t last you through a day at the park, it will keep you cool during your morning commute or daily jog.

The Reon Pocket is expected to launch in Japan first with a price equivalent to a $117. Currently the release date is March 2020. There’s no word on a release date for the US.
