For the non-vehicular (self-propelled) commuter, the Thermal Comfort Chair is intended to provide personal, localized thermal equilibrium primarily immediately following a commute. As a commuter arrives to work or home their metabolic rate is significantly higher than that of their coworkers. That commuter is unfortunately at the whim of the air handling system that cannot accommodate temporary, or personal needs. Rather than sweat it out, the Thermal Comfort Chair is an active heat sink for the body so you can return to equilibrium and obtain a productive comfort level.

  1. I just discovered “Peltier Junctions” in the textbook I was reading. Might be worth checking out (via google); they look cool.
