Reader Submitted: This Design Concept is Meant to Keep Public Transit Riders Cool on Hot Summer Commutes

Last year, temperatures of and above 40°C were recorded on the London underground tube network, which surpasses the EU limit for transporting livestock. These conditions resulted in increased levels of passenger discomfort during warm weather conditions.

Flo is a wearable product, designed to evaporate sweat and reduce body temperature to improve thermal comfort amongst London Underground commuters. The product applies localised cooling directly onto the user medial lower and upper back, using a combination of phase changing material and ventilation technology.
