The Future Is Now: Climate-Controlled Clothes

December 29, 2010


Plus you look cool. Get it -- cool?!

Brad Pitt here is modeling a jacket designed by Kranthi Kiran Vistakula that features a climate-control system that allows the user to maintain a steady temperature regardless of weather. You hear that, Mother Nature? YOU DON'T OWN ME!

ClimaWare apparel can operate for eight hours on a single charge, and the vest (pictured right) weighs the same as a pair of jeans. Vistakula's apparel, which also includes a helmet, neckwrap and jacket, is lined with metal pucks placed at spots on the body where blood vessels are most dense to more efficiently regulate body temperature. The pucks are made of two different metals, so that one heats up, and the other cools down. The resulting energy is transferred to the skin through a thermoelectric lining stitched inside the clothing.

Pretty neat, right? Of course, I've been wearing climate-controlled clothing for years. They're called layers. I usually start with three, and if it gets too hot I take one off. If I get cold I put one back on. And I'm feeling really randy I take them all off and spin my penis like an airplane propeller.
