This Fabric will automatically Cool or Warm as needed

Hello Everyone! The researchers from the University of Maryland have created a new kind of Fabric which can help the Wearer to feel comfortable at all times, irrespective of whether they are at cool temperature or at hot environment Normally our clothes will be helping us to feel warm when we are at cool environments Actually they are able to do it by trapping infrared radiation which we commonly call as “Heat”. But, this feature of the Clothes won’t be helpful during Hot weather, because they will make us feel more hot. So, we tend to avoid clothes during hot temperature and we need clothes during winter times. Some Researchers were trying to address this problem by making a Fabric which needs to be manually reversed to chance its characteristics. That means, if you wear it at one direction (side) it will be making you feel warm and if you wear other direction (side) , that is if you switch or flip the direction (side) you will be feeling cool, some kind of coolness. but it is bit uncomfortable so, the new research is making it happen automatically without the need for the manual reversing step. The fundamental concept is same During summer time, it will allow the Heat to escape, and during winter time, I mean at cold environment it should trap the Infrared radiation, i-e “Heat” so that you can feel warm. It is the fundamental of this kind of clothing. But the unique thing of the new research is, it is making it automatically. we need not flip the direction (side), we can wear the dress as it is, but it will automatically do everything so that we can feel a comfortable temperature at all environments so the researchers are calling it as a Dynamic gating of infrared radiation in a textile They published their Paper at Science Magazine. Actually the researchers constructed an infrared-adaptive textile composed of polymer fibers coated with carbon nanotubes. Actually, the yarn itself is getting expanded and collapsed based on the heat and humidity so the spacing of the Fibers will be changed.
