Experts from MIT system showed heating of premises
What is the first action to take people who are in a cold room? Logical to assume that the first thing everyone is trying to heat the room, including stronger heating, which causes large energy consumption. Also, if the room is large, it takes time to it warmed. However, experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ( MIT ) have proposed a new, more efficient method of heating the frozen people.
Developers have created a directional setup, with which will be able to get rid of excess heat loss. The prototype device is a local heating of a LED spotlight that directs you to the beam of heat. Moreover, such a beam is safe for human consumption.
The installation itself is a source of infrared light diode, which can be located on the ceiling and direct the heat in one direction. The concentration of the beam-steering is achieved by mirrors that are installed near a heat source. Thanks to an integrated motion sensor system can automatically track your movement around the room and direct the beam of heat directly to you.
Now in large cold areas do not need to spend a large amount of energy for its heating, the resource Engadget. Thanks to the local heating can warm people, not space.
Developers have reported that in the near future they plan to modify the system, making it more compact and efficient. Now the plant is able to prototype and purchase it is not yet possible.
By the way, experts from MIT is not the first time turning their attention to issues related to heat. Not so long ago they presented a prototype personal climate bracelet that provides comfortable feeling to the ambient temperature.
