Some of us are experiencing the full wrath of the El Niño. If you are on the receiving end of extreme heat because of this nasty weather phenomenon, you may want to wear an air con when you are outdoors. Wearing an air conditioner is exactly what the Torras Coolify Zone Wearable Waist Fan lets you do. That’s right. The folks who cool your neck and face now want you to wear it (the air con) on your waist.
Torras claims that its “waist air conditioning system” is outfitted with “cutting-edge phase change materials” which along with a high-speed centrifugal fan that delivers effective cooling. It is essentially a portable fan that pushes cool air thanks to the so-called phase change materials.
The Torras Coolify Zone Wearable Waist Fan is said to be able to deliver a powerful wind speed of 5.5 m/s (18 ft/s or 10.7 knots) from its “multi-blade design and two centrifugal fans”. Wait. I thought it was “a high-speed centrifugal fan”? Hmmm. Now I am confused.
Anyways… in case you are wondering how this gadget cools you… well, you gotta wear it under the clothing. So, it is probably not effective for nudists. Jokes aside, it is actually a pretty clever way. It kind of reminds me of the Sony wearable t-shirt air-con we saw some years ago. But I am curious, wouldn’t it make the wearer look puffy? I mean there is a device pushing wind under your clothes?
The device is powered by a 4,000 mAh rechargeable battery that offers anything between 5 and 15 hours of operation per charge. How long the battery can last depends on the wind speeds, which have 3 levels. The device comes with two sizes of belts to accommodate a wide range of waist sizes.
