Ready to Explode / Phone accessories

Ready to Explode

The mobile phone heats up gradually as the user uses it for a long time. The phone shell will change its color and appearance as the temperature of the phone goes up. The higher the temperature, the darker color it will turn into. Meanwhile, its explosive shape will be exaggerated. The darker color is like a visual warning, and the explosive shape will also make the user feel uncomfortable. It serves as a reminder for the phone user: now, it is time to leave alone your phone and take a break.
