Sony Reon Pocket AC launched; details

As per the report, Sony has priced the Reon Pocket AC at 13,000 Yen or about Rs 9,000. The company also revealed that users have to keep this portable AC in a pouch in a special t-shirt. Inspecting the technology, this AC does not purify and cool the air as a traditional AC. Instead, it uses what is called the “Peltier effect” to function. As part of the effect, a material absorbs or emits heat when an electrical current is passed across a junction. The product listing page indicates that Reon Pocket AC can push the temperature down by -13 degrees Celsius. Also Read - Sony offers PlayStation 4 bug bounty worth Rs 38 lakh

Users can also use it to increase the temperature by 8.3 degrees Celsius in cold weather. These claims note that the user was at rest for five minutes at room temperature. However, the decrease or increase will vary slightly depending on the person. In addition, the company also noted that the product can be controlled with a smartphone app. The app offers four different levels of cooling or heating along with an auto mode.

In addition, the company is also selling a special inner-wear t-ship “RNPS-C1VA” in three sizes, S, M, and L. This innerwear comes with a pocket at the back where users can place the Reon Pocket AC. It is worth noting that the device is only available in the Japanese market at the time of writing.
