“How on earth are you wearing that sweatshirt today? It is SO hot outside!” Molly said to Jake.
“It is a special kind of sweatshirt that has electronics in it. It cools you down when you are hot, and heats you up when you are cold! You can wear it in any type of weather.” Jake replied.
“Cool!!” exclaimed Molly.
“I know, AND it has LED reflectors on it to so people can see kids walking or biking alone. Also, it has a built in mp3 player. All you have to do is tell it what you want it to play, and it will play it for you without you having to touch anything. Also, it can be worn in any weather even if it is pouring because the electronics are waterproof.”
“What kind of energy does it use?” asked Molly.
“That is the best part. It can be charged with solar energy OR electricity.”
“Wow! Where did you get it?”
“Well, I went to Tomorrowland in the future! I saw many cool inventions in the future, but this is one of the best ones. If you want one here, we need to get engineers to collaborate. There are engineers in the present working on new types of thin, flexible solar panels, air conditioned/heated jackets, and clothing with LEDs. But they are not working together yet. If they work together, they could help design these jackets that can do ALL of the things mine can.”
“Let’s get started!” yelled Molly.
