'ThermalTech' is a revolutionary startup that is producing the world's first solar-powered fabric. While most people use multiple layers to keep themselves warm, this tactic is not always ideal. Now there is a fabric that helps to keep consumers warm without adding extra bulk.

ThermalTech has designed a solar-powered fabric that provides unprecedented levels of warmth. The fabric itself is made from stainless steel yarn, which has the ability to absorb energy from the sun and artificial light sources. As a result, the fabric can generate as much as 18 degree Fahrenheit of heat in less than two minutes time. In addition to its high-tech heating properties, the fabric is also thin, lightweight, breathable and water-repellent. These properties make the coat idea for those who are looking for an alternative to bulky outerwear.
