New Delhi: Sony’s latest product from its crowdfunding platform is a wearable air conditioner (or heater) called Reon Pocket. The idea behind the device is to keep its wearer cool or hot when they step outside.

The wearable uses Peltier, an element used for car and wine coolers, SlashGear reports.

After two hours of charging, Reon Pocket can be kept into the pocket of a specially made undergarment. One can then wear anything on top of that and use the companion app to control the temperature.
