Safe Drinking / Container

Safe Drinking
Safe Drinking

Sometimes when we drink, the container is cool to touch, but the liquid inside is still hot. Being scalded in this way is common for everyone. This situation could be more serious for the blind and the visually impaired people. Using thermal expansion theory, SAFE DRINKING helps users feel out the liquid temperature. When the liquid is hot, the embodied air bag will expand and form protruded bubbles. By touching the container surface, the blind people can tell the content is hot or not. The visually healthy people can also tell from the transformation of the container.3D printing technology makes the hollow and cellular construction feasible.
