It's getting hot in here
Sony has invented a wearable air conditioner worn just below a person's neck in the pocket of a special undershirt and controlled by an app. According to Sony, the Reon Pocket can decrease a person's body surface temperature by 13C. It can also raise it by 8C if you want to use the device in the winter months to stay warm.
Age and beauty
In a society where youth is worshipped, getting older is often seen stereotypically as a decline in physical capability, mental agility and sociological staidness. Researchers have found this negative impression about ageing affects us psychologically and also physically. This is a focus in the social psychology field known as mind-body studies. A World Health Organisation report on ageism will outline myriad ways that ageist attitudes can affect the health and wellbeing of older people. Psychologist Becca Levy spent her career linking negative ageing attitudes to such measures as walking speed in older people, a greater likelihood of developing the brain changes of Alzheimer's disease and even a reduction in lifespan.
