At a time where temperatures are rising at a dramatic rate, Sony has introduced just the perfect product to keep us cool - a portable, smartphone-controlled air conditioner that can fit in one’s shirt pocket.

Tech giant Sony recently introduced a futuristic, Bluetooth-powered, tiny personal air conditioner dubbed the ‘Reon Pocket’, which can keep a person stay cool at all times.

As per Futurism, the air conditioner is worn just below a person’s neck in the pocket of a special undershirt. As soon as the device is in proper place, the wearer is able to easily control it via a smartphone application.

Using thermoelectric cooling, the Reon Project can reduce a person’s body surface temperature down by 13°C. It can also raise the temperature up by 8°C if the person wants to use the device in winters in order to stay warm, as per Daily Mail.
