This Nike-sponsored chair to enhance sports performance

New York : American multinational corporation Nike which is engaged in the design, development, manufacturing and worldwide marketing and sales of footwear has teamed up with architect Greg Lynn to create a stylish chair that keeps athletes warm or cool during games, while they are sitting on the bench.

The microclimate chair relies on 70 embedded Peltier thermoelectric pads that either heat up or cools down depending on a desired temperature, the Verge reports.

Lynn believes that a sports team can gain a serious competitive advantage over opponents with this innovative technology. (ANI)
