Wristify. A Thermoelectric Bracelet That Tricks Your Body Into Not Feeling Heat

Wristify prototype

Wristify is the first bracelet that activates personal heating and cooling, that is, it tricks our body so that it stops feeling hot or cold as needed. They use a thermoelectric material to quickly cool or heat the temperature on your wrist, directly.

A rapid heating or cooling of the skin is perceived by your brain as a much stronger effect. That is why this is an efficient method to keep people more comfortable, with minimal energy expenditure. Can you imagine the energy savings that the massive use of this gadget would entail? Incalculable.

As its inventors tell us:  Why heat or cool a building when you can heat or cool a person?
