Scientists at the Swiss company have come up with an air-conditioned bulletproof vest designed to keep its wearer cool and comfortable as they go about their work.

The bulletproof vest incorporates an integrated cooling system consisting of special water-filled pads and a number of small fans. As the water evaporates it cools its surroundings, while the fans help to distribute the cool air around the wearer’s body.

“Bullet-proof vests made of Kevlar, as their name suggests, hold off bullets but they are also impenetrable for water vapor,” the company explains on its website. “Thus police personnel who must wear such gear under their uniforms sweat profusely when the weather is warm.”
