Bacteria-ridden "biofabric" makes for self-cooling gymwear

Gym clothes are generally made to be breathable, but now a team at MIT has developed a material to make activewear a bit more active in cooling the wearer. The outfit is made out of a living "biofabric" full of microbial cells, which automatically open flaps in the shirt when they sense heat and sweat, to help the wearer cool off...
