Thermoregulating fabric keeps wearers comfortable

kirigamiA thermoregulating textile has been developed that keeps wearers comfortable with a minimal amount of energy input owing to a conductive polymer that can be modified to adjust how much infrared radiation it sheds.

According to the textile’s developers from the University of Chicago, North Carolina State University and Duke University, the new wearable device could be used to make next-generation smart thermal management fabrics.
