I think this is great because this is the first black body radiation thermal reflector, no synthetic & organic textile can provide the protection from radiated heat loss.

Dont mean to pick on ya too much but.... "The researchers calculated that their thermal textiles could save about 1,000 kilowatt hours per person every year — that’s about how much electricity an average U.S. home consumes in one month." to "1 megawatt hours per year - that is as much as a power plant's output!" So, that logic means that each average household needs 12 power-plants going to maintain their power needs.


Interesting concept... kinda scares me to be wrapped up in wires though. Id be afraid to turn off the light switch. But in general, it takes less energy to heat up a small area like a person, than it is to heat up a large building. The other issue is the medium they use for the energy. Its cheaper for me to use gas for my over instead of an electric one..... and even more so if i wanted to tie a bunch of batteries together to heat my oven up. If they make some fancy slippers which build up static electricity that gets used to heat up your cloths ... that would blow my mind a bit.

This is nice and all.. but when are we getting clothes that cool us? Because, you know, you can always put more layers on if it's cold out.. but if it's hot, what, do you rip your skin off?

Cool, or rather, hot.

Potentially great applications for outdoor activities, or rescue services etc.

Nuclear plants generally have turbines in the 500-1200MW range.
Number of turbines per plant varies (I've been in 1-8 unit plants), really depends on the plant.

But you are right, 1MW is pretty pitiful. Heck, you couldn't even start a coal fired plant with that.

Still, a power saving is a power saving, and 3.6GJ per person per year is quite significant.
