Is this the end to sky-high energy bills? Thermoelectric wristband which will keep your whole body warm created by scientists

whole body warm created by scientists

  • Revolutionary design aims to heat the person not the building
  • Wristify works by monitoring temperature before sending warm or cold pulses to the skin to heat or cool the entire body
  • Four engineering students at Massachusetts Institute of Technology behind the competition-winning invention

With energy bills soaring and no sign of prices coming down one team of scientists in America may have come up with the answer - heat the person not the building.
Inspired by a desire to reduce energy consumption a team of four engineering students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) flipped the age-hold worry of heating your home on its head.
Focusing on the innovative idea of cooling and heating people rather than entire buildings, the team developed a thermoelectric bracelet.


Innovative: A team of scientists at MIT have developed a new wrist watch to help regulate body temperate. The aim is to solve the problem of soaring energy bills, heating the person rather than the building

The idea was borne out of the concept that heating or cooling parts of your body can help influence how hot or cold we feel in general.
A cool flannel placed on your head can sooth a fiery temperature while a pair of handwarmers can help skiers and hikers warm

Just wank furiously like I do, give it a try - its great fun although you might chafe in the early attempts.   Forget thermal coats, hats and scarves.... just whip the little fella out at the bus stop and see the calories get burned up.  A great talking point too.


Take a bow
