The Japanese are known for their offbeat inventions - In the past, they have invented hologram music stars and even made a fashion statement with LED teeth. Now, they have come up with an even wackier creation - Air-conditioned jackets that will help you keep stylishly cool, even during the hottest summer days.

Created by Japanese manufacturer Kuchofuku, the polyester jackets that come in seven different sizes, are available with either long or short-sleeves. Each masterpiece is fitted with two battery powered electric fans at the back. While small, the fans are quite powerful and capable of circulating over 5 gallons of air per second when switched on at the highest speed and over 3 gallons on the lower setting.

As to why someone would need a jacket in hot weather is anybody's guess - But, incase you are one of those people feel free to order one, from
