Are your guts freezing because of the weather where you live/work/play? You might want to check out this upcoming gadget from Sanyo. The memorably named ENW-WW2 is a waist and stomach warmer. No one’s stopping you from wrapping it around other parts of your body or on other things, living or non-living, but you’d best keep such ideas to yourself.
But what if you already have someone to hold you and keep you warm on cold and lonely nights? Well, unless that person is Cole MacGrath or Max Dillon, he or she probably won’t be able to charge your gadgets, something that the dual purpose ENW-WW2 can do. Seeing as the warming bit seems to be done by the strap alone, and the power source is an Eneloop battery, I wonder if Sanyo will release the strap as a stand alone purchase. No word on that or on the electrical and thermal numerology relevant to this device, but it’s supposed to go on sale in Japan on October 21 for ¥8000 (~$104 USD).
