Souvenir for my dad

Good morning everyone,

It's still raining, but it should stop by the time I'm heading to work. The rest of the day will be cloudy and then it'll be sunny and warm again tomorrow. Monday is going to be overcast and then it'll be rainy again from Tuesday. Whew! This rainy season seems longer than usual, doesn't it?

It’s summer, which means the sun is shining, the temperature is rising, and armpits are sweating. While no one likes having a steady stream of perspiration dripping down the side of his or her upper body, it’s kind of hard to stop the flow when your body takes it upon itself to enact countermeasures against Japan’s hot and humid weather at this time of year.

However, Japanese gadgetry producer Thanko has a solution that’s more high-tech, and less soggy, than wedging a sponge under your arm, The company’s new Under the Armpit Cooling Device (Waki no Shita Kura in Japanese) is a mini fan that clips on to your shirt sleeve and delivers a blast of air to keep your pits dry. Your armpits, not to mention your coworkers, family members, and fellow commuter train passengers, will thank you.

▼ Just snap on one of these babies, and say good-bye to sweaty armpits!

Two AAA batteries will keep the fan blowing for five to nine hours, depending on which of the three selectable speeds you use. Alternatively, you can power the device by plugging the included 35cm USB cord into your PC or a separately purchased battery pack.

The Armpit Cooling Device is priced at Y1,980 for a single unit, or Y3,800 for a set of two. The clip-on design means that in addition to attaching the device to your sleeves, you can also use it to keep you stomach or neck cool by positioning one on the front or collar of your shirt.

What do you think? Do you think my dad will like it?

Have a great day!
