As we anticipate a future of warmer summers fuelled by the climate crisis, we have to find ways to adapt to the changing environment. This cooling headwear cap, which is a first-of-its-kind product in this space, has been designed to make the summers a little more bearable for people.”
The duo have worked on several notable projects and lent their expertise to the development of technologies and products that have played an important role in introducing modern technologies One such being their innovation of fully illuminated traffic light project which has been implemented in the city of Mumbai and now being visibly replicated elsewhere in the country.

Apart from being made with sustainable material, the cap is energy-free and carbon neutral. The cap reflects maximum sunlight back through the atmospheric window into space creating a cooling effect on the inside. It can achieve a cooling of more than minus 5 degrees than the outside temperature.”
