Hover Hat

airborne, air-cooling sombrero

Let the others walk around hot and bothered, sweat running down their backs. You'll be cool as a cucumber, proudly sporting a softly droning sombrero, hovering a few inches over your scalp. The rotor wash of the two concentric, counter-rotating fans will keep you as chilled out as the inside of an Eskimo's freezer.

This heli-hat looks just like a stylish sombrero. The broad, thick brim provides shade while encapsulating the propellers with its hard, rounded sides and safety net on the horizontal surfaces. The crown conceals a powerful electric motor, and the hat is held over the head via elastic laces to ear clips and by the cord to the back battery pack.

For cold weather family fun, snow removal or just to give your ears a rest, choose the radio control option.

       // Have you ever picked-up an electric motor? //   

       Yes. FarmerJohn promised us it wouldn't hurt. He was quite correct; he was not hurt in the slightest.

       UnaBubba: No, but it's got a Black Hawk fast rope.   

       ato_de: Since there are model helicopters with motors and battery, lift is not a problem.

       That's a feline?   

       If I ever get access to a digital camera, I'll post a pic of my baseball cap, which has a solar-powered fan in the bill.

       By chance, did anybody save a copy of the pic of me in a sombrero?

       Yes, a bit strong even for this crew, UB.
