    Hate the hot weather? Now you can buy twin fans that you wear!

    It's the Wearable Sports Fan. This is a weird gadget! Here's  a bit of info about it from Amazon: Hand free fan was design as a headphone to free your hands anywhere; Fashion style makes you look so cool. Hanging around your neck, suitable for traveling in hot weather. Low/medium/high speed level. 1800mAh lithium battery. 5-10 hours working time depends on different speed.

    And the Giz Wiz take: Well, you will look weird wearing this thing. (Watch this week's show to see how you feel about wearing one. I didn't think the output of the fan were good enough to cool you off, but when Dennis tried it on, he thought on a hot day at the beach, you would be really glad to have one of these. The prices for these fans are all over the place. I bought one for about $16, and another for $11 at a different place on Amazon. Turns out they are the identical fan with different names. Now you can buy them under $10 on Amazon, but delivery could take weeks because some of them are shipped directly from China. I got both of mine overnight with Amazon prime.
