Japan leads the way in weird wearable tech

Japan is leading the way in weird wearable tech, including leg warmers that emit oxygen and a watch that uses data from the camera to analyze your pulse.

The gadgets come from companies like Hiroshi Ishiguro, whose Shiseido brand sells the Nochima One Legs Warmers for $50. The gadget is designed to protect sensitive areas like the genitals against cold.

However, its shaggy front end may raise some eyebrows.

Shiseido also sells the Nochima Eflatrone. It is a device worn on the head that emits a pneumatic pressurized gas outside your skull.

The idea is that this gas will “inject” air, creating a constriction in the air, causing it to rise, pushing cool air back into the wearer’s body.

While the idea of a wearable air pressure treatment is intriguing, the Howiton is actually a Bluetooth-enabled watch. It is being developed by Otrago, a manufacturer based in Japan.

If it were sold here, the Howiton might look more like a pair of Under Armour tights, as The Stuff explained.
