[Other] [Tech Bytes] New Wearable Air Conditioner that Fits in Your Pocket: Would You Like to Have it?

Hello Mi Fans,


The increasing effects of global warming continue with Europe facing one of the biggest heatwaves and in India, the monsoons have been delayed, leading people to spend more sleepless summer days and nights. And with global temperatures rising at an alarming rate, it’s getting harder and harder to avoid melting into a sweaty puddle during the summer months.

Technology has evolved so much over the years that we have a number of tech-savvy devices making our lives easy. If it's always been your dream to have air conditioning with you wherever you go, our today's discussion might interest you! A ‘wearable air conditioner’ is no longer a pipe dream!

  • What It Is?

Keeping in line with technological advancements, Sony has developed a wearable air conditioner that will keep you cool during the rising temperatures. Called the Reon Pocket, the innovative portable air conditioner consists of a small device that fits in a shirt pocket and compatible with both inner and outer wearable which can be controlled by your smartphone, making it as portable as it can get.


It helps to get relief not only from the steaming hot summers but also from the cold winters. The pocket-sized device can be kept in a small bag or can be worn on the back or neck with dedicated underwear and controlled with a dedicated application, controlling the temperature through mobile phone according to ones need.


  • How Does it Work?

If you are wondering how the device works, it is as simple as it looks. It works using the “Peltier effect,” which involves using a small electrical current to allow it to either absorb or give out heat. Such elements are mostly used for car and wine coolers as it uses less power when used for a long time to cool something. With this element, the device uses a newly developed technology to make it wearable. With a size smaller and weight lighter than that of a mobile phone, the portable AC releases cool air through a small rear panel.

The AC works with a rechargeable battery which has the capacity to last for 90 minutes after two hours of charging. You don't have to worry about the temperature as it can be adjusted using your smartphone via Bluetooth connectivity. While the Reon Pocket should be able to cool a user’s body temperature by 13 degrees Celsius (23 degrees Fahrenheit) in summers, as estimated by Sony, the device can also help during cold days by warming a body up by 8 degrees Celsius (about 14 degrees Fahrenheit).


The dedicated inner wears for the wearable air conditioner are found in S, M, and L sizes but, as of now, is made for men only. The innerwear is made with a pocket at the back to insert the device. Making it more user-friendly, the device is powered by a lithium-ion battery that can be used for an entire day with just 2 hours of charging. It is a light-weight device that measures approximately 54 x 20 x 116mm and supports Bluetooth 5.0 LE connected phones.

Currently it's in the crowdfunding phase and exclusively available in Japan for the time being. But what's your thoughts about it? Would you like to have it? Is it really a futuristic solution to the problem of staying cool?
