Thanko – USB Necktie Cooler 3 – A tie that cools down your body – Savior of Japanese salarymen in the summer time!
Those who have ever visited Japan in the summer time must remember how brutal Japanese summer is. It’s very hot and humid so that you pour sweat all over your body right after leaving home. Japanese salarymen (meaning corporate employees in Japanese) are poor things because many of them have to put on a tie even in the hottest month of August.
So, we would like to recommend the “USB Necktie Cooler 3″ released by Thanko. It looks like a regular tie at first sight, however you can pull the knot down and a fan shows up. Once you connect the tie to your PC’s USB port with the accompanying USB cable, the fan starts running and cooling down your neck area.
With a portable battery (sold separately), you can run the fan anywhere and anytime without a PC.
This practical tie with some light humor could be a great belated gift for your salaryman dad for Father’s Day.
