Researchers at MIT have created a wristband that can track your whereabouts and adjust the temperature of the building according to how you feel. The WristQue is equipped with sensors that can detect changes in temperature, light and humidity.

If there’s someone else in the room, the device can calculate the optimal temperature where the both of you can feel comfortable.
