Watch keeps you at the right temperature

5秒内即可调节体温的手表

If you’re always complaining you’re too hot or too cold, researchers have created a personal air-conditioning unit, named the Aircon Watch.

The device allows users to heat or cool their wrist, which its inventors claim makes your whole body feel warmer or cooler.

The watch has been designed by experts at Hong Kong-based Aircon Watch, and is based on the premise* that changing the temperature of a patch of skin can in turn change the temperature of the whole body.

The strap of the watch contains a device that delivers pulses of heat and cold. These pulses interfere* with signals that the nervous system sends to the part of the brain that regulates* temperature. By confusing the nervous system, the watch is able to make small changes to body temperature.

The designers based their design on a study by researchers at Stanford University in 2012 that looked at temperature regulation.

In the study, the researchers showed that a device called “the glove” could lower the body’s temperature by drawing blood to the surface of the palms and cooling the blood with cold water.

The watch itself features an OLED display and contains a battery that can provide four hours of cooling or eight hours of heating.

The designers see it being used by a range of people, including office workers, athletes and women going through the menopause*.

The designers said: “Menopause often has hot flashes which can be annoying and painful. But what if you could get some relief from a small device that emits a soothing cool temperature.”

The watch is expected to cost US$75.(SD-Agencies)
