'Cool' invention wins first place at MADMEC [News]
posted October 21 2013 9:13.19 by spic0m

Heating or cooling certain parts of your body such as applying a warm towel to your forehead if you feel chilly 14 can help maintain your perceived thermal comfort.

Using that concept, four MIT engineering students developed a thermoelectric bracelet that monitors air and skin temperature, and sends tailored pulses of hot or cold waveforms to the wrist to help maintain thermal comfort.

For this invention, the team, called Wristify, took home the $10,000 first prize at this year's Making And Designing Materials Engineering Competition (MADMEC).
