These high-tech gadgets will keep you warm all winter long
Embr Wave BraceletThe Wave bracelet activates your thermal senses with cooling and warming sensations, sent out in dynamic waves to your wrist, which has nerves that sense temperature. It provides a similar sensation to the refreshing chill of a cold glass or the comforting warmth of a hot mug. A study, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, found that warming with Embr Wave can make an uncomfortably cool person perceive the room as 5°F warmer and the cooling feature can help an uncomfortably warm person perceive the room as 5°F cooler!

DryGuy garment dryerWhen you come in from being outside, you need to dry your damp, cold gloves and boots.
