Massachusetts Institute of Technology´s students have invented a one-of-a-kind heater system named ´Local Warming´. This heater is unique because it tracks the location of a person and projects warmth directly onto them! It does not heat an entire room, instead the heater uses wi-fi based motion tracking to determine an individua´s position inside a building and sends the ceiling-mounted dynamic heating elements to focus its rays. Each heating element is composed of a servo-motor that changes direction, a bulb to generate infrared radiation, a cold mirror and other optics to create focused beams. The first working prototype of the Local Warmer was unveiled at the Venice Biennale in Italy.
