There's A Crowdfunder For Personal Air-Conditioning Units That Fit Inside Your Shirt
As you're probably all too aware, it's been a bit warm in recent days - in fact, Thursday was officially the hottest July day on record. If we're being honest, we Brits don't deal very well with the heat. Commuting is rough, working is impossible and we all just want to be a in a beer garden.
However, Sony is now crowdfunding for an absolute game-changing device - a personal air-conditioning unit that fits right inside your shirt.
The Reon Pocket would be designed to slide right into the back of a specially-designed shirt and rests just at the base of your neck. Its settings can be controlled via an app on your phone and it can either blast you with cool or warm air, depending on the weather.
The device, which is being crowdfunded in Japan, will cost around £100 ($130) and a two-hour charge will give you 90 minutes of cooling (or warming) air.
The crowdfunder page is almost halfway to its target and promises that the item will be launched next year, if successful.
The bad news is that, for now, it looks as though Sony only has plans to launch it in Japan, and whether or not you'll be able to get it shipped over remains to be seen.
If the hot weather is really getting to you, you don't want to wait a year and you have to fly to Japan, then Snowballs - 'cooling underwear for men' - might be the answer to all your prayers.
Snowballs come with two freezable wedges that can be popped into your boxers and keep your bits and pieces at a more comfortable temperature.
Or if the problem isn't your testicles but actually your chesticles, then you can get yourself a freezable bra. What a time to be alive, eh?
The freezer-friendly inserts can go inside any bra to keep your boobs cool as the mercury rises.
According to description for the 'bra coolers': "Cool58° cooling packs freeze solid at a moderate and comfortable temperature of 58° Fahrenheit, so they can be activated in a freezer, refrigerator, or even a cooler of ice water.
"Packs can simply be submerged in ice water or placed in a refrigerator or freezer to activate.
"Activate by simply submerging the packs into ice water for up to 20 minutes when access to freezers is not available."
Sounds pretty... erm, cool.
