At the risk of splitting hairs, your seat cushions are blowing air on you. But the direct, localized cooling does sound tantalizing. You'd be consuming less power to produce such focused cooling. I did read dremd's thread, but have not seen hugely successful results. I'm not crazy about cutting up my seats and running fluid through them. In contrast, your forced-ventilated cushions seem desirable. I look forward to your review. Please post a link here when you do.

Now how about if we take those cushions and use the cold air output from the vortex tube to feed it?
