Now you can wear your AC…
Hot, sticky and exhausted… yes that’s what heat does to us. And the only thing we desire the most in scorching heat is an air conditioner. But you can’t carry an AC everywhere. Or can you?
Sony recently launched a “wearable air conditioner” called Reon Pocket which can be used while travelling or anywhere you need it to be cool.
You can carry this pocket AC in your bag or wear it with a customised undershirt. It’s controlled with a smartphone connected by Bluetooth. For now it’s available for iOS and Android with an app for the device. Just connect to the app and switch on the AC. It can cool your body by 13 degrees Celsius but what’s more interesting is that it can keep you warm in colder days. It has a battery capacity of 24 hours, and can charge in 2 hours.
It will be available in India at an approximate price range between Rs9,000 and Rs13,000.
ACs were invented for paper, not people. Willis Carrier invented the AC in 1902 not to cool people down, but to reduce the humidity so that a printing company could get the ink to stick to the paper when it was too hot out.
