Summer is around the corner and temperatures are only going to rise, which will have you seeking lots of cool down remedies. While many will want to take dips in pools, head to the beach, snatch up all the fans in the house and blast their air conditioners, there are some looking for more unique ways to say cool. For these folks, Thanko’s USB Neck Cooler is just what they need. The company already has a neck cooler in the form of a necktie clip for all the businessman out there, but this one simply wraps around your neck to keep you cool.
Looking more like a futuristic dog collar for humans, the USB Neck Cooler features front left and right arms that are lined with heat conducting metal that also has two internal fans, which suck off the heat off your body and exhausts it out the back of the device via exhaust ports. But the rear also houses two rechargeable AAA batteries and an individual fan speed adjustment controls for the left and right fans, as well as a standard USB port to recharge the batteries. According to Thanko, the Neck Cooler is supposed to make you feel more refreshed for up to 12 hours on a single charge. If you’re brave enough to sport the USB Neck Cooler in public this summer, the company is shipping it from Japan for $20.
