Anti-scald Mug / mug

When drinking hot coffee or tea, we mightn’t know if the temperature is proper for drinking. Sometimes we might scald our lips or tongues! Therefore, this design lets people easy understand the hot drink colds down by the donut-shaped balloon in the handle.
Utilize the character of “the heat makes expansion and the cold causes contraction”, the donut-shaped balloon will expand and contract by the temperature. If the drink is hot, the donut-shaped balloon will expand, prevent sticking fingers into the hole to hold it. If it colds down to proper temperature, the donut-shaped balloon will contract, that people can hold the handle to enjoy it.
