Why I'm not Covering This or That Event Right Now

vintage solar powered hatBack in the 80's I gave my grandfather a solar powered hat with a fan on it that blows a wind on your head as long as the sun's out.  I thought this would make his life working the farm in the hot sun more enjoyable.  He never wore it beyond the mandatory initial try it on for everybody show.  I always assumed it didn't really work because it was just a weird gimicky "future" thing.  It worked.  I guess it was too much technology for him.  It still works, and now I'm wearing grandpa's hat.
