USB “Air Conditioned” Shirt

July 20th, 2006

Ex Sony technician, Kouzi Ichigaya has come up with a simple idea to keep cool this summer: The USB Air Conditioned Shirt. It’s powered either by USB or AA batteries or through your car’s cigarette lighter.

Somewhat to my disappointment however, it’s not exactly air-conditioned. The shirt simply features two fans on each side of the waist which blow air inside the shirt. This leads to evaporative cooling by vapourising sweat without the use of any heat pumps as is the case in air conditioners. It’s nevertheless a cool idea, but to be fair, I think it ought to be called the air-cooled shirt.
