Fingertip Temperature / Blind ceramic water cup

Fingertip Temperature
Fingertip Temperature

Taking care of special people is an issue that designers must consider. We incorporate the concept of intimate design into the design of ceramic water cups. Pouring hot water for the blind is a very dangerous action. The ceramic water cup with fingertip temperature is designed to solve this problem. The easiest way for people to sense the temperature is to touch it quickly with their hands. The special groove on the front of the handle of the cup allows the blind person to quickly touch the temperature sensing area to avoid scalding yourself when hot water overflows.
