Microcapsules keep your clothes warm!

 

 

 

 

 

Researchers at the Center for Nanotechnology and Intelligent Materials in Portugal have created clothes that have their own temperature control system so that the person who is wearing them is at the “perfect temperature,” according to The Step Science.

The secret of these clothes is hidden in microscopic capsules that have the ability to absorb and also release heat. These capsules are a thousand times smaller than one hair and are incorporated into the fabric fibers. They contain a wax material created specifically for the occasion and gives them the possibility of temperature control.

Researchers estimate that “thermoregulatory” capsules may in the first instance prove to be extremely useful in the field of athletic clothing.
