INTRODUCING REON POCKET, SONY'S WEARABLE AIR CONDITIONER
Yes, you heard that right! Sony has developed a new kind of air conditioner (AC) that you can wear with your clothes. This portable AC, called Reon Pocket releases cool air through a small rear panel. The Reon Pocket is smaller and lighter than your typical Android phone. You can wear the AC using a special undershirt.
The AC works with battery and the temperature can be adjusted with a smartphone via Bluetooth connection. The rechargeable battery of the AC can last for 90 minutes after two hours of charging. The device is by a lithium-ion battery. Reon Pocket supports Bluetooth 5.0 LE connected phones.
The wearable AC is not waterproof, but any dirt, sweat, water droplets that stick can be wiped off with a hygroscopic soft cloth. Sadly, this amazing product when it's ready, will be only available in Japan.
The Tokyo-based company has claimed that it has adopted Peltier element for this AC which is normally used in car and wine coolers. The inner wear for the wearable air conditioner is found in 'S', 'M' and 'L' sizes and is made only for men only. A pocket is made inside the neck of the innerwear in which the device can be inserted. We can’t wait to have this on the market.
