neck warmers in August?

BoingBoing Gadgets has a post about rechargeable neck warmers. August is most certainly the most wrong time to be posting about rechargeable neck warmers, but that’s the nature of the retail apparel seasons, right? They always like to be one season ahead of the times to screw everything up. So, this rechargeable neck warmer thing sounds really cool (or warm). Problem is that it appears to be available only in Japan. Japanese I know not, so the price is uncertain. I headed over to amazon and they sell the old fashioned, non-rechargeable neck warmers for $6. I really like the image accompanying their neck warmers.
