Flexible Cooling Film

A polymer film able to transfer heat could bring us a step closer to wearable electronics.
The new material relies on the electrocaloric effect, which causes it to change temperature when subjected to an electric field. Made of a thin, flexible polymer film, the material is able to transfer heat from the heat source, such as a battery, to the heat sink by switching the voltage off and on. The material could be used to keep mobile and wearable electronics cool, as well as function as a sort of personal cooling system when placed in a hot or shoe.

    Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins
    to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve
    worked hard on. Any recommendations?
