‘Reon’ – Sony’s wearable air conditioner

Sony releases new version of Its ‘Reon’ pocket wearable Air Conditioner. It is a slim palm-sized white plastic device that charges over USB-C and connects to your iOS or Android phone.

It’s twice the endothermic performance. The Reon Pocket is a smartphone-controlled personal gadget that was designed to be compact and cool.

It works using thermoelectric cooling and can cool the user’s body temperature by 13 degrees celsius (23 degrees Fahrenheit) and raise your temperature by about 8 degrees Celsius (about 14 degrees Fahrenheit). Reon sits on the base of your neck in a special undershirt designed for it.

It pairs with a special T-shirt you can wear under your clothes; just slip the Reon Pocket into the compartment beneath the back of the neck and wait for it to absorb heat from your body.

It uses the Peltier effect which means a temperature difference is created by applying a voltage between two electrodes connected to a sample of semiconductor material.

The gadget can be set to work automatically or adjusted to match your personal comfort preferences through an app.

The heat is absorbed or emitted when you pass an electrical current across a junction to either lower your temperature or increase it without bulk or noise.
