    Well, a research team at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) has found bacteria that can adjust the temperature of your fabric according to the way you sweat. Yeah! Sounds crazy, right?  The bacterium is found and used in Japanese cooking but was invented when a Samurai found it keeping a stalk of rice, which was kept to weave bags for transporting soybeans.

    The cells of these bacteria are used to make a fabric called bio-skin. While you all know that ‘cheese-grater’ clothes are in; so on similar lines, the fabric has ‘vents’ that open and close when you breathe, perspire and cool-off.  When the heat rises, the vents open to let in more air, and when you’re feeling cold, the vents close. Now there will be no need for layers in the gym! How amazing is that?
