No, but literally… all you have to do is a press a button. The Embar Wave Bracelet is designed to hack the way you feel by using its patented technology to cool (or warm.) The temperature-sensitive skin on your wrist in waves, creating a natural response that makes you feel cooler by within minutes! It sells for a pretty penny averaging at about $300, but by the end of the season, your electricity bill would probably cost more.

2. Attach a mini fan to your smartphone

You know you can’t put that thing down anyway – look… you’re on it right now! Why not kill two birds with one stone so that you can scroll through the ‘gram and beat the heat? This USB fan is the perfect tool to keep yourself distracted from the triple-digit weather.
