Thanko - Electric paper fan to keep sending you comforting natural breeze

If somebody would continually fan my body on hot summer nights, I'd get good, comfortable sleep.

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.

For people like me who are reluctant to use the air conditioner all day long, Thanko's USB Dendo Uchiwa (meaning USB Electric Paper Fan in Japanese) could be one of the solutions to survive the hot summer.



It will wave a paper fan for you as long as your want with wind strength setting of your choice. I am not sure how much the device's operation sound will brother you, but still it will be a healthier way to cool down your self than leaving the air conditioner on.

Energy Cost of Doing Business 
Most of us are aware that the grand trade-off in operability between the Motorola StarTac cell phone of 20 years ago and the supertech mobile communicators of now is energy. Most old phones would run for several days on a single charge, but now, moderately active to heavy smartphones users need a few charges each day.
