Keeping cool during the summer months can come in all sorts of forms.  You’ve got your misting fans, your regular fans, your Dyson bladeless fans – you name it, there is an apparatus for just about any scenario.  Heck, there is even a cooling system built specifically to keep you and your bed partner cool.  However, none of those compare, at least in terms of weirdness, to Cooling Foam Sprays.

We’re not too sure where you can get your very own can of Air Conditioner, but they seem to be, wait for it, a product of Japan.  Yes, trust the Japanese to come up with this novel cooling solution.  According to a CNN report issued last year, there seems to a few different types.  One can of AC produces a malleable like foam that went bent and squeezed breaks the AC air pockets trapped inside and thus releases cool air.  The other kind is of the gel ilk and when rubbed on the skin causes a cooling like sensation.  The sound it makes it just bizarre.

From a use case scenario, none of them seem practical, unless of course we’re talking about a blackout during the peak of summer when all bodies of swimmable water happen to be shut down.  That said, we gotta assume they are safe, especially if they’re to be used in emergency heat situations, which is when the elderly, the most at risk to heat stroke, would be a target demo for this product.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
