Flex hose keeps cops cool in the car

You may feel cooler, but your partner may not appreciate having that tube on his lap. CoolCop

As weird as this CoolCop contraption appears, those of us who live with the humidity of a tropical climate can probably identify. Essentially a flex hose similar to what's found on vacuum cleaners, the $49.95 CoolCop attachment makes it easy to redirect your car's air conditioning into your shirt to keep you cool and dry. The idea is that policemen wear many layers of clothing, including a bulletproof vest, so they still sweat in an air-conditioned car.

The dashboard attachment hooks into into the air conditioning vent and serves mainly American police car models. Those so inclined in other countries could try to mod one from an old vacuum cleaner.
