Make it Wearable: Wristify, a personal climate-controlling wearable could make ACs obsolete

I’m pretty sure, that I had Wristify here at futurescope a year ago. Wired had a small feature about first prototypes. Doesn’t seem that way. Never mind. Wristify from embr labs is a thermoelectric bracelet or a personal climate-controlling wearable that allows you to instantly heat or cool yourself by subjecting the skin to alternating pulses of hot or cold.

Team Wristify has developed the first active personal heating and cooling bracelet. Using the Intel Edison, the wearable wristband adapts to users’ preferences, utilizing biofeedback to respond to physiological cues, and creating a new channel of communication between wearers and their own thermal comfort. Invented by a team of materials scientists from MIT with the express intent to deliver rapid temperature change directly to the skin, Wristify stimulates thermoreceptors and maximizes sensation per unit energy used. Whether it’s through refreshing cool or soothing warmth, Wristify is a wearable experience with a strong emotional value, and functional hardware that is well-suited for everyday use.
