Thanko - Portable Wind Turbine Generator

Ride a bicycle and gain additional benefits!

Thanko's new Portable Wind Turbine Generator will make you feel lucky every time you ride a bicycle or motor bike.

Once you ride a bicycle or motorbike that has the portable wind turbine generator attached to the handle, it starts generating enough electricity for 2 size AA rechargeable batteries.

Using either of the accompanying 5 connecting cables, the generated power can be fed to smartphones, tablets, iPhones/iPads and things like that. You can also take out the size AA rechargeable batteries and use them for other devices. The portable wind turbine generator itself has a LED light so the saved power can be used for lighting up your ride at night.

The AA rechargeable batteries are not included to the package.

It's not easy to use a tablet or smartphone while you lie on on your bed. That will eventually give numbness in your arms. But, if you have the stand, there will be no need to hold your tablet or smartphone and then you can enjoy using it for a long time without your arms getting tired.

It's getting steadily hotter in Japan. I will need to start using the air conditioner throughout the nights soon, but because the air comes from the air conditioner is too strong, I know that constantly leaving it on makes my body feel sluggish

It looks like 2 umbrellas, but it's just a single strong umbrella!

A huge umbrella, Niko-Ichi-Gasa, that looks like 2 umbrellas got attached was released by Thanko. It's obviously big so that it will be easy to use together with somebody else and you can avoid the situation where either of you gets soaked.

Also, because it features a design that covers the sides, you will be protected from diagonally wind-blown rain.

Thanko is now selling binoculars that work with iPhone 5 - called Live View Binoculars for iPhone 5.

With regular binoculars, you have to move your face/eyes closer to the lenses. That position could make you feel tired or make you easily lose the object you want to see. Or if you wear glasses, it's probably not clear what you are looking at.

It's an awful feeling to keep leather shoes on all day in the summertime. Thanko could be your savior with their new product: the USB Soukai Shoes Cooler.

The USB Soukai Shoes Cooler is designed to eliminate stuffiness inside your shoes. Soukai means refreshment in Japanese.

 

It is said that stimulating pressure points on your head is effective in healing your tiredness and stress. Now, Thanko has a clever product called USB Buru-Buru Helmet to do just that. It is a helmet-shaped head massager that can help you with your stress even while you are working hard at your desk work.

Power is fed through a USB terminal or 3 size-AAA batteries.

The vibration level is adjustable.

Price: ¥2,980
