Developed by four engineering students at MIT, Wristify is a prototype wearable device that leverages the physical phenomenon known as the Peltier effect to reduce your body temperature.

Better than stock liquid (sweat) cooler?
Need to see overclock (caffeine) benchmarks and temps under load (exercise)

Maybe this will fix throttling (passing out from a heatwave)

I had a hyperactive thyroid for a while which creates more hormones then your body needs. My body temperature seemed a lot higher before I had gotten this problem taken care of. Now my body feels cold all the time, but if you use this on someone with a hyperactive thyroid, it may soothe their body I dunno.

The chief benefit of this device is that it offers a more personalized approach to temperature control, one that’s vastly more efficient than current heating and cooling methods. It takes millions of watts to raise or lower the temperature of an entire building, but Wristify can run on a small lithium battery. If everybody had one of these things on their wrist instead of relying on air conditioning or heaters all the time, the potential energy savings could be massive.

Perhaps (no, surely) even more important than any sort of ecological savings and the like is the trillions of hours (2,000,000,000,000 divided by 24 divided by 365.25 gives us 228154232.26 hours of total insanity, which when divided by the assumed amount of human beings that have ever lived (107,602,707,791, http://www.prb.org/Publications/Articles/2002/HowManyPeopleHaveEverLivedonEarth.aspx), you get 0.0021 hours, or 7.633 seconds per person that has ever lived. Seeing as how I have wasted hours of time on this, I'd say this is likely going to be fairly accurate) of saves insanity on fighting over what temp. to keep the home, office, etc. Keep it at a medium value, and instead of both sides suffering then, just have each side cool/heat themselves up with an attachable heating/cooling device.

Cyborgism is glorious.

What a stupid idea. Yea I'm gonna walk around with heatsinks on my wrists. Gotta wonder about some of these people
