Temperatures neared the 40 degree Celsius mark around Tokyo over the weekend – reason enough for Thanko to start selling the so-called USB Hinyari Cushion Ver. 2 [JP], which essentially is a USB-powered cooler/cushion for your butt. The Tokyo-based crap gadget maker has offered a very similar item last summer, and apparently that cushion sold well enough to be updated this year.

The new version is “more compact” (395×500×30mm) but still works the same way: just plug it into your computer’s USB port, sit on it, and let it cool your behind through the built-in fan.

In Japan, Thanko is selling the USB Hinyari Cushion Ver. 2  for $16. If you’re seriously interested, ask import/export specialist (and Thanko partner) Geek Stuff 4 U to get one for you.
