Hands down, this wearable geeky gadget wins the Dept. of WTF award for this week. There is no such thing, perhaps, but who’s to stop us from creating such an award? Just take a look at that picture and you don’t even have to wonder why….
Well, just in case you are indeed wondering, let’s take a look at this quirky summer accessory that you might want to leave at home when you hit the beach in the summer. While the cap looks just like any other baseball cap, the solar powered fan hat aims to keep you cool during the hot summer months. It does so with the small fan attached to the middle of the bill, which has a built-in hole. The dumb ingenious design is such that the fan blows air right onto your forehead. (If you’re wearing contact lenses, I have this feeling that they will dry right off of your eyes and fall out.)
And hey, to complete the geeky aura, instead of using AA or AAA batteries, you get your very own solar panel! You will not miss it – no one can miss it! – as it is stupidly conveniently placed right atop of the hat, to catch the sun’s rays to the fullest.
Oh my, I am at a total loss for words now. I cannot think of anything else to say about this hat except, WTF were they thinking???
