'Cooling glove' beats the heat

It looks weird but supposedly works

Avacore Technologies

The contraption displayed here may look like some kind of ill-conceived device from the days of bloodletting, but it's actually a physiological instrument for the 21st century. "CoreControl" is described as a "cooling glove" that increases the flow of blood to the palm's "radiator zone" and lowers the body's overall tempurature two to five times faster than ice packs, fans and other traditional methods.

Avacore Technologies, which makes the device, claims remarkable success in tests with athletes, firefighters, military personnel and others. "You don't necessarily feel cooler; you just feel completely refreshed and less fatigued," according to Gizmag.

Even if it fails in the marketplace, it probably wouldn't be long before someone converted it into a joystick for a DIY game console.
