Reon Pocket – Wearable Air Conditioner

Reon Pocket is a wearable air conditioner, which is produced via it’s First Flight internal startup platform. It’s palm sized and is a white device that charges over USB-C and connects to an iOS or Android phone via Bluetooth.

There’s a silicone pad on the back which presses against your skin and uses the Peltier effect to cool or warm itself up by absorbing and releasing heat. You can use it handheld but it is best used with Sony’s special V-neck undershirts. As they have a pocket on the inner back. Helping the device to rest between your shoulder blades.

Reon Pocket’s app is simple to use and gives you direct control over the temperature settings. There’s three levels of cooling or warming and a boost mode. Which is limited to two minutes and a control over the speed of the “fan”. Also you can set automatic modes which will auto start whenever you start the device using the power button. Rather than using the app. The device weighs 80g and lasts 2-3hours on a charge. Though this does depend on the intensity of the settings.

The Reon Pocket is available now although it is exclusive to Japan. It costs $122 dollars for the device and the undershirts cost $17 each. While the app does work in English if you wish to import it.
