The layered dress is here to make sure that it will not be cold in any part of the day, and hot, but modern technology promises that such a dress code will soon become a past.
Namely, experts from the University of Maryland created a unique fabric that changes its properties in relation to the body temperature of the user. The new product, described in the text published in Science magazine, manages heat emission, and the fabric consists of two types of materials, none of which originate from nature – Cellulose triacetates and carbon nanotubes. The first type of material absorbs moisture, while the other refuses, giving the material unique properties. So if the body begins to sweep the material that absorbs moisture, it changes the shape, which is a signal that it is cooling time. When the body is dried, and the material returns to its original state, it begins to heat up again.
The creators emphasize that the human body quickly loses heat, and that until now the only way to preserve it was an additional layer of clothing, which the new material could always change, although it will pass for a while until it is found on the market, and will provide users with a way to regulate heat without managing excess clothing.
