Imagine our joy when we learned about the Stay Cool Suit, lined with SmartFabric, a phase-change material that absorbs heat from the body when the body needs it absorbed, and releases it when it is not. We were in a meeting yesterday where a woman was wearing a fleece vest because although it was over 30 degrees outside it was under 18 in the air conditioned office tower. Under those conditions a phase change suit would be to die for. ::the Uberreview via ::Gizmodo
Now not all treehuggers wear rancid ponchos, occasionally some of us have to wear a suit. We have noted that in Japan the salarymen are being exhorted to lose the suit to save energy but it is falling on deaf ears.
