The system — called Alykangas — consists of microscopic channels of plastic that can be integrated into garments, and pumped with hot or cold liquid, enabling the wearer to cool down or heat up. While this technology is already available, VTT's new mass production method will significantly lower previously high production costs and time. VTT envision the system being used in wearable technology, whereby temperature can be controlled with the user's smartphone. The microscopic channels could also be…
