cooling and heating jackets using vortex tubes.

Consider a jacket with a thin fabric layer. It is knitted with capillary tubes which are further connected to a vortex tube. The vortex tube is connected to a compressor filled with a coolant and the compressor is machined through a simple gearing arrangement mounted to the motorcycle's (bike) engine. An efficient vortex tube can bring about a thermal difference of 20 degrees hot and cold... depending on the weather one may choose either of the outlets (hot and cold) and connect his jackets capillary tube outlet to it. So as he rides his bike his body is conditioned too the temperature he wants. This can also be used to cool vegetables while being transported from one place to another. This will be much cheaper than air conditioning!!!

any thoughts/arguments and ideas???
