MIT Team Develops Temperature-Dependent Color Changing Roof Tiles
As you know, we love featuring ‘green’ and/or environmentally related advances in technology, and here’s another. This time, a team in the Department of Materials Science at MIT have devised a roof tile that changes its surface reflectivity depending on the temperature. In a nutshell, at low temps, it absorbs as much sunshine and heat… Continue reading MIT Team Develops Temperature-Dependent Color Changing Roof Tiles
Wearable computing’s next step – gestures only, no handheld device
