Thanko - USB Shoes Cooler to eliminate stuffiness in your shoes

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.

The horseshoe-shaped USB Soukai Shoes Cooler can be hitched to the front side of a shoe. The built-in USB fan sends fresh air to the inside of the shoe and helps prevent the inside from getting too humid. Since the fan is USB-powered, you can use USB Soukai Shoes Cooler anytime and anywhere you have a PC or portable battery.

It can also be used for your body by wearing it around your neck.

Putting little spy cameras in eyeglasses is nothing new, to be sure, but doing it with thick, feminine-ish black hipsters frames with two front-facing, identical 2mm holes on each side that allow the camera’s lens and mic to just sort of blend into the overall design, well that's somewhat novel. We love Thanko so much.

Yoriko Takahashi - February 21, 2014 - Thanko Niko-Ichi-Gasa Umbrella

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.

From Thanko's "Gorone" (means lay down/bunk down) series, a new tablet and smartphone stand to support your smart device for you to use while you lay down was just released.

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.
