Sony launches crowdfunding for wearable air conditioner
Sony’s First Flight program has launched a crowdfunding project for a wearable air conditioner called the Reon Pocket.
The Reon Pocket seems to be a device that fits into a small pouch in a special shirt. The pouch is located on the back of the neck and utilizes the Peltier effect — described as heat being absorbed when an electric current passes across a junction between two materials — to lower the temperature or raise it without any noise. For the Reon Pocket, the temperature can be controlled through a mobile app. As for battery life, it’s expected to last around 2 hours.
Sony expects to launch the Reon Pocket on March 2020 in Japan. It has a starting price of JPY 12,760 (~PHP 5,999).
