If you've always dreamed of having air conditioning everywhere, Sony might have the solution. The Reon Pocket from the company's Startup Acceleration program is a small device that fits into a shirt pocket and keeps you cool or warm when touched by a smartphone app.
The device slides down the neck of a specially designed shirt. The temperature is set via the app, which connects to the Reon Pocket via Bluetooth. Sony crowdfunding is the gadget.
A basic package with the Reon bag and a shirt costs about $ 1
If all goes well, the device could be available next year, said Yoichi Ito, a project leader at Reon Pocket, in a blog post.
