From cooling body sprays, sun parasols and portable hand fans and lightweight sunscreen, here comes another gadget you never knew you needed.

The Thanko Neck Cooler is precisely what it sounds like. You attach it around your neck and the plates on each side of the device are cool to the touch leaving you sweat and hands-free. Gone are the days of lugging around bulky summer essentials like a portable fan and parasol. Free up your hands and choose from one of the designs featuring Sanrio characters Cinnamoroll and Kuromi.

Thermoelectric cooling utilizes the Peltier effect to create a heat flux at the junction of two different types of materials. This device relies on conduction and does not incorporate a rotating fan. The overall weight is 150 grams.
