Sony Releases Portable, Wearable Air Conditioner
The device can be worn in the neck compartment of a special T-shirt.
Sony has introduced an innovative way to keep cool this summer: meet the Reon Pocket air conditioner, a wearable cooling device that can reduce a user’s body temperature by as much as 23 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Reon Pocket is sold alongside a special T-shirt that holds the slim, palm-sized apparatus in a special compartment located just below the neck. The device can connect to a companion app, available on both iOS and Android, that regulates temperature using motion sensors and allows users to manually adjust cooling levels. The Reon Pocket can also be used in the winter — a heating mode can increase body temperature up to 14 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Sony Reon Pocket air conditioner retails for approximately $120 USD on Sony’s website.
