Air conditioned seat cushion cools your rear without warming the earth
Kuchofuku has developed Suzukaze air conditioned seat cushion as its newest product. Kuchofuku located in Japan is famous for developing air conditioned clothing that uses almost no energy. Humans generate sweat to regulate body temperature, and the new air conditioned cushion uses this inherent body temperature regulation function and the minimal amount of energy necessary to power a fan in order to provide the ideal cooling level for humans. When the small fan built into the cushion rotates, over 170 liters of air per minute is sent into the cushion, thus dissipating the heat and moisture accumulated around the buttocks.
The Kuchofuku Suzukaze air conditioned seat cushion weighs only 261 grams, and because of this lightweight design it can be easily rolled up and carried around in compact form.If the cushion is used every day for 8 hours a day, the monthly electricity cost is less than 5 Yen (5 cents).
