If you're someone who's constantly unsatisfied or uncomfortable with the temperature in your home or office, the wristify bracelet is for you.
This piece of wearable technology was designed by a group of researchers at MIT and this device resulted in the team winning first prize at MIT's Making and Designing Materials Engineering Competition, also known as MADMEC.
The inspiration for this gadget came from two sources. The first is more personal, in that it's no secret how difficult it is to keep everyone in one room satisfied with the temperature. The second is more eco-friendly, as it's a way to eliminate the amount of energy used up by air conditioning systems.
The way the Wristify bracelet works is simple. Since it's attached directly to your body, the device monitors your personal air and skin temperature and it sends hot or cold pulses throughout your body depending on what your body needs.
