Mercury, the intelligent self-heating jacket

The Boston start-up company, Ministry of Supply, has designed a self-heating smart jacket that can respond to changes in temperature and create an individual "microclimate" for the wearer.

The jacket uses sensors and thin carbon fiber bearings that automatically heat up in response to body movement, internal temperature and weather. Unlike other heated jackets, which often need to be pre-programmed at a certain temperature, Mercury is able to constantly adapt and optimize its thermal power to adapt to the user’s body temperature, creating what the company describes as a individual "microclimate".

The technology of the coat takes about 90 seconds to warm up. The jacket can reach temperatures of up to 57 degrees Celsius, the same temperature as a cup of coffee, and is able to run at full heat for four and a half hours.
