There was something that already did this. Researchers at Stanford created a cooling glove using vacuum to cool down the body so a person could exercise longer.
It was a matter of time before a University came up with a way to cool my overclocked onboard graphics chip.
this sounds promising! We all have those disagreements at home or at work on whether it's hot or cold, and as someone who hates the heat, lives in Los Angeles, and has no air conditioning..... This could be a life saver! lollll
There's been a lot of work done in recent years with regards to cooling the body in order to accomplish certain things. I wasn't aware of the one you mentioned, JesseLiss, but I do know that, for example, emergency medicine has worked with cooling people down to prevent damage when a victim is en route to a hospital. If memory serves, that's what they did with Kevin Everett, the Buffalo Bills tight end who got seriously hurt on the field a few years ago. He never played again, but because they kept him cool, he was able to regain the use of his legs. Really interesting stuff.
However, my impression of this MIT tech is that it's more about the *perception* of bring warm or cool. Which makes sense--it's weird that when a building is 70 degrees, everyone experiences that 70 degrees differently. Some are hot, some are cold, etc. This thing would allow everyone to *feel* warm enough or cool enough without the temperature in a building to have to change.
This comment was too long. My bad.
