Sony is working on a new wearable AC device that is about the size of a wallet.  It tucks into the back of a specially made t-shirt to keep you cool in the summer months and also warm you in the cooler months.

The device is called the Reon Pocket and they claim it’ll drop body temperature by up to 23 degrees Fahrenheit, or raise temperature by up to 14 degrees.  It pairs with your smartphone via bluetooth  to control and has a battery life of around 2 hours.
