You're a little late for the short hate thread...

This has been put down people's pants many times by now

What does it actually do for body temperature though?

If I have cool air blowing down my spine, making me think it isn't quite as warm, will I sweat less despite it still being hot outside thus making me more likely to overheat, or is that not an issue?

Do they make one for moobs?
Um, asking for a friend.

So the article says "$109 US". 

Where would someone find it for that price?

Article is stoopid and Google is your friend. I did not find one that cheap and did not find a seller in the U.S. of A.
I also didn't bother to look very long.

Yup.. a Peltier junction device.. thought so... no moving parts, runs on a battery.. one side gets cold, the other side gets hot...   a toy to stimulate the imagination...

Seems thermally impossible, a battery gets warm as it gets discharged so a heater yes.

Nobody cares, probably,

but there are a couple of blood vessels in your body that you can apply cold to, and they will really cool you down. I used to watch people get really hot and then buy a pocari or something from a vending machine, and, before drinking it, they would put it on their neck. It really really works. You could just as well shove the can in your groin, I suppose.

Jugular vein, femoral artery, carotid artery, whatever.... cool that blood down and it is like a refrigerator.

There is no way that this device can cool you with a Peltier module for more than a few minutes unless Sony has developed some sort of miniature fusion reactor. Those things pull an exceptionally large amount of current to operate. It's just cooling you in a way that makes you have the illusion of it doing more than it is.

Worked for a local brewery.. owners started as home brewers and had several 20 gallon fermenters, with heat strips to keep the kettle warm for starting the fermentation process, and peltier junction cooling devices to remove the heat generated by fermentation.. big aluminum heat sink on the hot side of the device, fan cooled...  powered by a 24 vdc brick, similar to a laptop brick.. used a lot of power, but did a decent job keeping the kettle cool... used the fermenters for test batches.. regular fermenters were 40 bbl (barrel), 1240 gallons capacity, way too big for a test batch.
