Metaura Pro wearable air conditioner with 18 °F cooling available via Indiegogo InDemand
The Metaura Pro wearable air conditioner is now available via an Indiegogo Indemand campaign. The company launched a Kickstarter campaign for the same product in March, raising over US$256,000. The wearable device sits on your neck, blowing air on your skin. In fan mode, the air is -7 °F (~-4 °C) cooler than the ambient temperature, and in cooling mode, the company claims the device can cool your skin by up to -18 °F (~-10 °C).
The gadget takes advantage of the Peltier effect, containing 121 pairs of semiconductors forming thermocouple pairs. The temperature differential generated results in hot air turning to cool air that can blow on your skin over an area of up to 13,745 mm² (~21.3-in²). Plus, the temperature can be adjusted from 60 to 130 °F (~16 to 55 °C), allowing heating and cooling.
An AI smart core allows automatic temperature regulation, with an NTC sensor monitoring your body temperature in real time. You can connect the Metaura Pro to your smartphone via Bluetooth and control the gadget’s settings via an app. The device can last up to eight hours on a single charge and recharge at 22 W in 2.5 hours. The wearable weighs 423 g (~14.9 oz) and has a silicone texture to sit on your neck.
You can currently buy the Metaura Pro wearable AC for US$249, which the company expects to be the final retail price of the device. The gadget is shipping immediately to countries worldwide and comes with a carrying case and USB-C charging cable.
