Embracing Warmth / Hand warmer

Embracing Warmth
Embracing Warmth

Have you ever seen an Emperor Penguin of the South Pole embracing its egg? Emperor penguins place their eggs on top of the feet and carefully embrace them for a long period of 4 months in the cold weather to hatch their eggs. Based on the motif that was inspired by such warm maternal affection of emperor penguins, embracing warmth notifies you of the outside temperature and weather information when you are about to go out on a cold winter day and allows you to carry around this portable had warmer.
