Cool Your Rear

Looking for a way to cool off at work, but don’t want a loud annoying fan blowing in your face? If so, there’s now a solution – the USB Powered Cooling Cushion:

Rear end chiller

This $50 Japanese device blows a constant stream of chilled air from down below, and is powered directly from any USB plug on your computer. Found via TechEBlog

This may sound crazy, but I’d actually consider buying one if I stumbled on it while shopping. I usually get warm from the waste down at work (mostly because I have 3 computers under my desk), so this may be the solution I need.

Would you use it, or am I the only one?

    So when I use this, will my butt look cool?

    All you would need is to increase the power and bingo…floating air seat. Now where did I put my industrial strength USB power converter?

    Hey fantasy – it actually cools your rear and the upper half of your body. It’s like a little fan that you sit on, just with no noise (I think).

    You can get that much power through a USB cable?!

    I always heard that sitting on cold cement would give you hemorrhoids, I wonder if this chair would do the same thing?

    Diesel – good question, I guess the power requirements are directly proportional to the area that needs to be cooled! So maybe it would only cool half of typical American’s posterior 😉

    Cassie – really? Eek. I just scratched this off my Christmas list.

    Is there a way to rig it so the air blows to the side? I like to wave my farts toward co workers but I’m starting to get a bit concerned about getting carpal tunnel.

    That is way totally cool. I stay warm all the time. If I thought it would work, I’d probably buy one but I’ve got this vision of the thing just inflating until it pops because my back end would cover the entire thing :)
