REheat is a collection of products that allows users to control their body temperature wherever they go. Using modern materials, REheat stores and re-emits your own body heat, simulating a mobile microclimate unique to each user. The system is composed to three products: an undergarment designed for women, the gender most affected by temperature discomfort; a modular patch that can be used with any clothing; and an app that provides the user with a means to monitor and manually override the system. In addition to providing comfort to individual users, REheat has the potential to reduce HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) usage by providing individualized microclimates and thus eliminating the need to regulate the temperature of an entire building.
