    Buildings can be fitted, with expensive super-materials, that freeze at night, and thaw during the day, to regulate building temperature.

    Why not ask employees, to crank open their windows at night (letting cold air in), and closed the next morning; and to dress in layers, that they can shed, over the course of the ensuing work day?

    Anti-efficiencies can be construed, to "lurk", in many & diverse forms. Cp. stereotypical grant proposals, for alleged "Wonder Machines".

    By mid July, all employees would be naked.

    Interesting concept.

    in some locations -- the premise of the NS article, was that ambient night-time temperatures were cold enough, to freeze the "Magic Material" for free, i.e. if summer is too hot, the materials would not work anyway

    so, presupposing, that "nights are cold", why not just open up the windows, and let the cold air in, for free, w/o additional expenses ?
