It could only be from Japan
@daermadm have to admit thats kind of clever
dirty potatos ain’t gettin MY BEER !!
on the other hand, THIS is a pretty cool accomplisment
“Japanese firm believes it could make a solid-state battery with a range of 745 miles that charges in 10 minutes”
now we just gotta wait for an american-sized version
“Japan’s new wearable air conditioner belt is here just in time for the Tokyo heat wave”
@dwarf I went and checked it out
current conversion rates it cost $234.33 US
[Adjustable waist/Equipped with a large capacity battery of 5,000 mAh/Continuous use for up to 17 hours/3 levels of wind power adjustment/With a dedicated app that can be controlled from a smartphone/Type-C charging}
Although I can get one from Amazon
[Portable Waist Fan, 12000mAh Battery Operated Fan, 20 Hours Working Time, 2 Speeds, Strong Airflow Hands-free Rechargeable Belt Fan for Outdoor Works, Takeaway, Farm, Hiking, Camping, Travel, Black] for $49.99
its more bulky but with the stuff I do I think I may get one
would be nice to mine in Arkansas in the summer
@orc that one at scAmazon isn’t an AC unit tho - just moves hot air around (still nice to keep your clothes from gettin damp and sticky). the jap one actually uses some high-tech phase change material to give ya a cooldown effect.
still, at $50 vs the pair of $250 ones an american would need, i’d prolly try the amazon one first too
if ya get one, lemme know how well it works for ya !
@dwarf Im for sure gonna get one … I been looking at the Japanese one I think they are saying PCM for simple heatsink they put in it.
Now there is on out there that actually does have a true cooling unit built in which is pretty cool but its a small wear on your neck unit.

Although having worked in HV/AC I will believe it when I see it lol

“A small Japanese village claims to be the final resting place of the son of God (and God’s other son’s ear).”
