Thankfully this Summer was a pretty mild one when it comes to temperatures, where I live at least, but there were a few days where a device like this personal air conditioner would have been most appreciated. The Handycooler might look like nothing more than a high-tech fan, but it actually harnesses the power of evaporative cooling to keep you comfortable. Inside the unit there’s a sponge you simply dampen with a few ounces of water, and the air that’s drawn over that damp sponge by a fan is cooled by as much as 25 degrees Fahrenheit! Refreshing!

On a set of 4xAA batteries the Handycooler will run for about 5 hours, but it can also be plugged into a power outlet or a USB port for use at your desk. $39.99 from ThinkGeek.
