Sanyo just announced this new product a couple days ago &mdash it’s a battery-heated rechargeable neck warmer that zips up into a turtleneck. This would be awesome for ski season.

    Jeepers, I wonder how long it’ll take before one of these bursts into flames?

    I know that they’ll be sooo well designed that it’ll never happen. Like all those Apple products….

    I’d be too scared to buy one of these things. What if something goes wrong and it starts over heating my neck, what I am supposed to do then? Like the commenter above said, if it bursts into flames, I’m screwed. http://ziggytek.com/

    Would like one for weather on the motorcycle… Are they water proof?
