Design Squad is a innovative and interactive way to engage students through hands on learning experiences in relation to technology. Design Squad has a range of activites,animations,videos and profiles that engage students in hands on engineering activites. This site can be used for many stages of learning process and is relevant to the classroom implementation of technology education. The Australian Curriculum Draft: Technologies has a design and technology strand in which design is a key focus. The Design Squad caters for and implements design elements in thier online resources that are avalible. This site is innovative, creative, unique and helps students create solutions through responding to the designed world. Why not try it ?

Wristband Can Warm or Cool You

Wristband Can Warm or Cool You | Art and Engineering | Scoop.it

Thermoelectric bracelet makes heating and cooling personal. Tiny changes in skin temperature can affect the how hot or cold your entire body feels.

 

Developed by four MIT engineering students, the Wristify works on the principle that heating or cooling the skin on one part of the body can make the entire body feel warmer or colder. By creating a personal heating and cooling device, the Wristify team ultimately hopes to cut the amount of energy currently used to heat or cool entire buildings.

 

MIT engineering students want to level things out with Wristify, a prototype wristband that monitors air and skin temperature, and then sends thermal pulses into the wrist to warm or cool the wearer according to their needs. Developers say their wristband can alter the body’s temperature simply by providing .4 degrees Celcius per second to the wrist.

 

Its designers have grander ambitions than that however, hoping that it could significantly reduce energy consumption in buildings by cooling the individual, as opposed to the entire structure.

 

“Buildings right now use an incredible amount of energy just in space heating and cooling. In fact, all together this makes up 16.5 percent of all U.S. primary energy consumption. We wanted to reduce that number, while maintaining individual thermal comfort,” Sam Shames, co-inventer of Wristify technology, said in a news release. “We found the best way to do it was local heating and cooling of parts of the body.”
