PCMs, the gift that keeps on giving (Part 2)
Ben Welter - Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Here are a few more PCM-related gift ideas:
High-tech clothier Ministry of Supply offers PCM-infused dress shirts, sweaters and even a scarf. It's the same technology used in spacesuits to regulate an astronaut's body temperature: Phase change material absorbs heat when the wearer is overheated, then releases it when the wearer is cold.
This one would be difficult to gift-wrap and wouldn't fit under most trees. But it looks pretty comfy. The memory foam in Serta's iComfort mattress -- or "Sleep System," as the manufacturer calls it -- is blended with gel beads that contain phase change material.
The Chilly Dog® Cool Vest is designed for use by police and military dogs. But any dog out for a walk on a hot humid day deserves to chill out.
