At some point in the future, air conditioners may yet become a thing of the past if some wise invention suddenly sets in to deliver the expected coolness as what most people enjoy today.
On that note, it seems that such a possibility has become more feasible especially if this new discovery by Doris Kim Sung gain ground.
A bioarchitecture student, Kim has been working on a special kind of thermo-biometal which reportedly responds dynamically to temperature change. The metal could eventually become a key part on the way the buildings are built – responsive to outside temperature.
If successful, this new material could offer a new system that can automatically breathe and regulate internal temperatures, a potentially wiser and maybe even cost-friendly way to that of the usual air conditioners which sucks up tons of electricity which also pose high financial problems as far as settling electric bills are concerned.
