It’s been -30 degrees here at Upverter HQ in Toronto this month, on more days than I care to admit.
For those for us walking or cycling to work, I have to wonder… why don’t we build climate-controlled bubbles for - at least - our heads? These guys seem to be looking at the cooling problem for motorcyclists: http://www.engadget.com/2012/08/21/all-weather-motorcycle-helmet-heats-and-cools-your-face-protect/
Of course, there’s always the option to go all ninja and wrap your head in a balaclava, but that seems anti-social. Plus, with a helmet you get the options of onboard audio and a heads-up display!
