Tokyo in the summer is not a pleasant experience. The combination of extreme heat and humidity renders one a slave to the air conditioner as you move from location to location, looking for the next respite of cool air. But what if you could take the a/c with you? The concept is certainly not new but Sony has a new elegant and practical solution.

Of course, the problem described above isn’t unique to Tokyo. Extreme weather and temperature patterns are increasingly becoming the new normal for geographies around the world. But with technological advancements, controlling the air temperature immediately around your person is becoming a more practical solution. And that’s what Sony’s Reon Pocket is looking to do.

Spoon & Tamago has the scoop on this cool new way to stay, well, cool. Head there via the link below for more details.
