I've just thought of a wonderful invention:
an umbrella hat, like:

Some flexible solar cells:

and either a little fan, or peltier coolers in the headband, or both. :)

I wonder if aluminized mylar can be flexed like an umbrella?

And, more important, would there be a market for something as crazy
as this? ;-)

Cheers!

Just make it a White umbrella, claim it reflects heat and reduces global
warming. Sell it for say $75 and live in Fiji for the rest of your life. ;)

Cheers

What you do is come up with a cartoon character that wears the hat.
Then pitch the idea to the cartoon network. They will hire guys to put
these things all over the largest cities in the US. Once Boston
defines the 'things' as a explosive device the media comes in and
gives you free publicity. At this point have enough available to sell
on eBay for 10 grand a piece.

searched on: fan "pith helmet" solar panel

Solar-Powered Cooling Pith Helmet
With cooling abilities far beyond the average sun-shading hat, this is
the safari-grade helmet that harnesses the rays of the sun to power a
miniature fan that keeps you comfortably cool while at the beach, on a
hike, gardening, cheering a sporting event, or any other outdoor
activity. The hat has a whisper-quiet motor powered by four compact
solar panels on top. In the evening, or on a cloudy day, the fan is
powered by two AA batteries (not included). As lighting conditions
change, you can easily switch between solar and battery operation with
a flip of a switch. Crafted from weather-resistant coated linen straw
for reduced weight and the highest degree of breathability. Imported.
5" H x 11 1/4" W x 13 1/2" L. (8 1/2 oz.)

Item 72808 ................... $49.95
