Summer, especially July and August, is hot in Japan, and we mean hot: heat in the 40°Cs (100°Fs) and humidity in +90% range explain why the constant public warnings for heatstroke protection. But what happens if you need to work outside, under those conditions and especially wearing a safety helmet? The answer is this Tajima Seiryo Cooling Helmet Fan, a little gadget that might literally save your life!
The cooling fan straps around your helmet and right at the base of your skull, a silicone funnel is connected to a powerful three-speed fan. You just push a button and the air stream goes from the fan through the funnel, both under your helmet and in the neck and back of the head area. This will dry off sweat and keep you, literally, cool-headed. And as for endurance, its lithium-ion battery can work for a full eight hours even at top speed. This means that you can spend a whole workday without worrying about the heat!
