Auto-Cooling Bra

07/12/2011 11:53 AM

AloooHaaa Folks!

I'll like to propose an "Auto-Cooling Bra" which will work as follow:

I believe that by putting in juction two dissimilar metals into an special reactan compound like Silica Gel or something similar which absorb heat to disperse it, we will be able to invent the (Bra of the Future) something never saw before in earth.

Let me know any feedback and input about this new idea which I'm absolutly sure will make any women very comfortable for years ahead.

Keep it CooL,

MC

Magwer, I am trying really hard to like this idea. Yes, I like it.

I can think of nothing else to say right now that will not get moderated.

Two dissimilar metals and moisture (women don't sweat) makes a battery.

I envision test wearer's chests bursting into flame at the first hint of glistening.

I can see these causing problems at the airport security lines. We already get delayed by my wife's under wires.

While this begs so many off color questions, there is one borderline off color question I have to ask. Why do you want to cool the bra area?

The best way to cool off the "bra area" is simply to remove all insulating materials, thus giving the area the ability to breathe, and remove heat through evaporation, and convection.

They look better that way anyway.

What a nice thought !

However, if the converse was true, how wonderful the world would have been !!!

You mean anything that breaths, if talks, that would be wonderful? I can not imagine what would be the situation.

Typo .... sorry.

i meant the converse....

Should have been .. anything that breathes should NOT be able to talk...or, preferably everything that breathes should NOT be able to talk... imagine not having to listen to politicians mainly...

Re: Auto-Cooling Bra

Perhaps you should perform a simple study FIRST and ask some actual women to see if there is a market for an auto-cooling bra before designing something that the public may not want.

There that is about as safe as I can make it.

Moving on, how about building the cooling system into breast implants? No, not a good idea but I bet a few of you had visions of school science experiment vegetable and fruit chemical reaction batteries.

Perhaps I should repost this in the thread "Here's How to Get People Interested in Science".

Re: Auto-Cooling Bra

Ladies use bras mainly to prevent the action of gravitational forces on their boobies, or to restore by means of paddings (so called push-ups) the consequence of the latter.

So I believe that any device that may add weight to such admired glands will be a complete failure as it will require larger elastics and laces, adding discomfort to the device.

On the other hand, considering the well known alterations in the shape and alignment these organs have, the use of metal sheets (unless very flexible) will lead to some cone shaped symmetrical receptacles not capable of serving the needs of most users.

My proposal is to replace your idea by wet T shirts, which will dissipate heat due to evaporation whilst sharing the beauty of the aforementioned glands to those who pass by.

Works well as long as they haven't completely surrendered to the forces of gravity....

In the case of a complete surrender to gravity we are facing what we here call N-B-N (nipple belly nipple) syndrome!

A very cool idea but would it help in preventing hot flushes?

i always thought (and my own experience supports it) that this is an area which causes heat elsewhere, mostly in some areas of the watcher. i did not know it is subject to heat and gets hot....well, one lives and learns. By all means, let the area breathe....

Don't you think that the chest is chest weather it is male or female. Only difference is the shape. Then why you think that woman chest only needs cooling!

You need to develop something which may be called Unibra!

Bypassing all the other comments, have you considered the efficiency (or rather the lack thereof) of dissimilar metal joints or even Peltier effect devices?

The batteries required to produce significant cooling would be unacceptably heavy. Then how and where do you propose to get rid of the heat removed?

I think this is a good example of a quote I saw a while back. "Women need men like a fish needs a bicycle!"

I agree that you should get some input from actual "users" before you go to far with this idea! But it is thinking outside the box for sure!

You need to conduct Market Research for the product you want to introduce. Better ask some ladies to get real feed back.
