Those living in areas with scorching summer temperatures would be wise to check out the Thanko fan hat. This hat is equipped with a solar-powered fan to provide coolness to your sweaty head. The fan is mounted on the brim of the hat, with the airflow being directed down towards the forehead. Hats are great at keeping the sun out of your eyes, but they're notorious for trapping sweat at the forehead. This localizing of sweat should be negated with Thanko's fan hat.

Thanko's latest creation may come off as ridiculous to some, but it is actually one of the missing pieces in the air-conditioned outfit puzzle. There are already shirts and pants designed to cool their wearer, so why not hats? The fact that the Thanko fan hat is powered by solar energy is also a big win for eco-friendly design. The hat itself comes in four different colors, and is available for $16.
