The summer heat can sometimes get so unbearable where even a fan does little to nothing to cool us down, only ending up circulating the hot air in the process. However, if you’re in need of something a little stronger, Sony just might have the device for you in the form of the Reon Pocket, a wearable air conditioner that fits right in your pocket.
Now, the Reon Pocket will need a specially designed shirt in order to be clipped onto, and it can be activated or deactivated by using your smartphone and an accompanying app. It will sit on your neck where it will help to keep you cool during those hot summer days. That being said, the entire setup doesn’t exactly come cheap.
The basic package with the Reon Pocket and one shirt that fits the device will come in at $130. The device is also expected to last for about 90 minutes per charge, so it’s not exactly designed to be used all day. In addition to being able to keep you cool, the Reon Pocket also works in reverse, where it will be capable of keeping you warm on those cold days as well, so it will be useful in both summer and winter.
For those who are interested, Sony has launched the device on its crowdfunding platform, although for now it seems to be only available in Japan, but you can take a look if you’re interested.
