USB-Powered Necktie Clip Keeps You Cool

As ridiculous as it may seem, Tokyo's accessory making company, Thanko has created an interesting gadget to help you escape the summer heat. If it happens to get uncomfortably hot in that suit of yours, the Thanko necktie clip cooler is the perfect gadget to cool you down and make you feel silly in the process.

The device consists of a necktie clip and miniature fan that is powered by a USB cable or included battery pack. Thanko's gadget only weights 28g, so it won't be weighing you down, but having to plug the fan into a computer or battery unit could be a hassle. Not to mention having a wire come out of your tie is probably going to look a bit silly.
