CoolWare Personal Cooling System Keeps You Comfortable Running Man Style

By Andrew Liszewski

Instead of exploding and decapitating you if you attempt to escape a prisoner work camp like in the film The Running Man, this slightly more pleasant collar from The Sharper Image ($49.99) promises to serve as a personal air conditioner on those days when the sun’s working a little too well.

The inner part of the collar that touches your neck is made from anodized aluminum, and when combined with a built-in 2-speed fan and a small reservoir that holds 2oz. of water, it creates a cooling sensation that supposedly “refreshes” your entire body. It’s powered by a single AA battery and needs to be refilled every 2 to 4 hours depending on how heavily you’re using it, but if it works as promised it’s probably a better way to endure the Summer than sitting on a block of ice in your boxer shorts. I sure do miss those Summer afternoons at the mall…

    I had one of these from the old Sharper Image and it worked well, except during periods of high humidity. I would recommend it to anybody and will buy another soon.

    Wasn’t that actually the Christophe Lambert film Fortress?
