Robotic jacket mimics plants to regulate body temperature. Outerwear companies and startups have long experimented with using battery powered heat to create warmer winter garments. Startup Omius Tech believes there's a more efficient way to use that battery power in regulating personal temperature, addressing a problem that often plagues winter jackets: breathability.

The company is creating a jacket that uses artificial intelligence and robotics to automatically adjust your personal temperature during changing weather and activity levels. This might just be the smartest (and eeriest) jacket you've ever seen. Like plenty of other wearables and tech products, Omius Tech's jacket is inspired by Mother Nature.

The Silicon Valley startup looked to plants in devising a better, more natural means of temperature regulation, modeling the jacket's ventilation system after stomata, the microscopic pores that plants open and close to let gases in and out.

However, the architect's early career was dominated by projects that were more experimental in style and form – the most radical example being his postmodern M2 Building, which reads as a mishmash of different architectural styles.
