18 Atypical Thanko Fashion Finds

From Furry Feline Earbuds to Cooling Baseball Caps

— August 4, 2014 — Tech
If these atypical Thanko fashion finds are your first introduction to the oddball Japanese tech company then you're in for a treat. These USB-powered mittens and cooling necklaces may not be high fashion in the U.S., but in the land of the rising sun things are a bit different.

Although these atypical Thanko fashion finds look odd (to say the least) they are extremely functional. A USB-powered kitty mask is only ridiculous until you realize that it filters air pollution. Leg warmers powered by USB may not be sold at American Apparel, but you'll wish they were come winter. Wearable tech is just now becoming a big thing in the United States, but if these atypical Thanko fashion finds are any indication then there's a lot of catching up to do. Apple, where are our USB mittens?
