Came across this fun new gadget from our friends at MIT.

Check this out! http://mashable.com/2013/10/26/thermoelectric-bracelet-lets-you-control-your-body-temperature/

These four students have created this bracelet that is a person heating and cooling unit! How much would skiers enjoyment improve if they were never cold? I wonder how much more the ski industry would grow in terms of skier days?!

Outside of the ski industry, people could use this in their daily lives. One could keep their house at an appropriate level and reduce their overall electricity consumption! The students found that roughly 16% of energy usage in the US goes towards atmospheric control of our buildings. Think of the impact and how much we could move one step closer to reducing our energy consumption and carbon footprint!

Pretty good MIT 🙂
