Forced air heated car seats

  [vote for,

Heated car seats are well known. They all use electric heating elements.

This idea is to use the vehicle's air heating system to duct warm air into porous seats. Warm air would exude from them.

The advantage is to use cheaper energy (waste engine heat vs. alternator amps) and to improve the drying ability of seats.

       The vehicle could be warmed quite quickly by an appropriate deployment of pyrotechnic devices, which can produce a quite remarkable amount of heat in a very short time ...
