26 Cooling Summer Gadgets

From Air-Conditioned Clothing to Soothing Slumber Devices

— July 28, 2014 — Tech
A wide variety of innovative, ingenious and plain quirky summer gadgets have been developed to help you beat the heat and stay chilled out in the face of soaring temperatures.

Some summer gadgets are part of the wearable tech revolution, and promise consumers the ability to chill out while also performing another useful fashion or utility function.

Some other gadgets are innovatively embedded into common summer products such as umbrellas and drink coolers. Some of these gadgets truly embrace summer by encouraging you to hang out in the sun while still promising to keep you cool while you do it.

Human consumers aren't the only beneficiaries of temperature-lowering summer gadgets however; there is also a growing market for gadgets targeted towards pets, who also feel the heat just like the rest of us.
