Transformer is a cup that makes use of the material Shape Memory Alloys. When we have tea or other beverages, often the material of the cup becomes too hot for us to hold. The ear of the cup can cause problems for storage. Through the characteristics of SMA, the shape of the cup will change its form when the temperature reaches a certain point. Therefore, when hot liquid is poured into the cup, the exterior of the cup will distort to become a barrier that prevents the hot temperature from burning the user. This will act as a reminder and protection for the user.
