Ice Cream Temperature Cup

This special cup helps the blind or people in poor sight to tell the temperature of the hot water in the cup by tactile feeling.

When the temperature is higher, the number of melting lines is bigger. Three ranges of temperature can be detected: one melting line for 10~30℃, two melting lines for 31~60℃, and three melting lines for >61℃.

The Shape Memory Alloy material is used for the handle.

The detection of the temperature helps users to tell the temperature, preventing from the burning injury of their mouths.
