The Cool Shirt

At first glance, I thought this shirt was designed to be a hydration system for racers. I was only half right. It's meant for racers, but not the running kind. The Cool Shirt is supposed to cool down a very hot driver. It connects to an ice-water cooler and circulates the freezing water through its stitched tubing. As gimmicky as it looks, it is actually used by race car drivers to prevent dehydration.

It looks a lot like the monitoring Smart Shirts, but shares more functionality with the USB air-conditioned shirts...
