Sunshine is great, but let's face it...summer can be the pits. And if you want to protect your pits from summer, a Japanese company has a quirky solution.
The Thanko Electric Armpit Clip-on Cooler Fan is a 30-gram (1-ounce) clip-on fan that attaches itself to the front buttons or the short sleeve of a shirt, blowing cool air to the body's more perspiration-prone areas.
Running on AAA batteries, it lasts between 5 and 9 hours, long enough for a fairly serious summer pilgrimage. It can also be charged up using a USB-based power bank.
It's not the first fan-related apparel to come out of Japan. 2007 brought with it, a predecessor to the even-more-perplexing of 2008.
The Thanko Electric Armpit Clip-on Cooler Fan can be bought from the company site, priced at ¥3,800 (about $35, £25 or AU$50).
