About 23 Degree Fahrenheit

A battery-operated wearable that uses the Peltier effect and pumps out heat to keep the body within 23 degrees Fahrenheit even in the hot weather acting as an inside AC, it is smaller than a computer mouse.

The Sony Reon Pocket will remain cool to touch, even as the heat gets removed due to a small fan that vents air away from the body.

Two to Four Hours Battery Life

The wearable can act as a heater during winter months that raise the body temperature to around 14 degrees Fahrenheit. The small size allows it's battery to work from two to four hours, based on how it's used before it is recharged.

Last summer, it was reported that Sony would launch such a portable device. It was announced that there would be two versions of the Reon Pocket. The lite version with only manual controls, and the standard version featuring auto-bells and whistles.

Now, only one of the versions is launched and is available on the company's official online store selling at roughly $120. At Amazon's Japan site, it is more expensive at $160. The t-shirt holders cost $20.
