The clothing of the future could cool off our bodies, thanks to plastic wrap? Stanford University scientists have invented a material that actively draws heat away from the body, hoping that its cooling effect could reduce reliance on devices such as air-conditioning.

Researchers in California have invented a fabric that would actively cool our bodies, were it woven into clothing, potentially reducing our reliance on energy-thirsty devices that cool our buildings and vehicles.
