Thermoelectric Bracelet Wins First Place at MADMEC

At the 7th annual MIT’s Making and Designing Materials Engineering Competition (MADMEC), team Wristify took home the $10,000 first prize for their thermoelectric bracelet that helps people maintain a comfortable body temperature.

The team of four MIT engineering students took the concept of heating or cooling parts of your body to help maintain your perceived thermal comfort for their invention. The thermoelectric bracelet monitors air and skin temperature and sends tailored pulses of hot or cold waveforms to the wrist to help maintain thermal comfort.

While the product is only a working prototype, the team says the ultimate goal is to reduce energy consumption of buildings by cooling and heating the individual wearing the bracelet rather than changing the temperature in the building.
