The micro-climate controller targets personal heating/cooling around the home, office and dorm room. The Balance MCC will heat or cool the ambient temperature using a thermoelectric device (TED). This technology is most widely used in the high-end automotive chair industry and small scale fridge/cooler market. A TED is a heating and cooling element that uses the Peltier effect to create a heat flux between junction of two different types of materials. The primary goal is to minimize the products physical footprint and maximize heating/cooling. The micro-climate controller will be designed around children ages three years and up.
