Researchers develop smart fabric that automatically warms or cools you off
from The Washington Post
Researchers from the University of Maryland say they have created a fabric that responds to its wearer, regulating the amount of heat that passes through the material. YuHuang Wang — a U-Md. professor of chemistry and biochemistry who co-wrote the study — said he envisions a time in the not-so-distant future when clothing becomes a “secondary skin” that helps people save energy and reduce the costs of air conditioning and heating by relying on them less intensely or shut them off entirely.
