Shower Time!


Forget about rubber duckies – showers will be way more entertaining if you can get your hands on these color-changing tiles from Inventables. Similar to mood rings (remember those?), this temperature-sensitive glass shifts colors depending on the ambient temperature and when it comes into contact with  warm or cold water (or body heat).

As for its uses, Core77 says:

“Temperature-sensitive glass is currently being used in architectural design ranging from small glass tiles to large architectural pieces. For example, when guests in the Mickey Mouse Penthouse at the Disneyland Hotel take a shower, the tiles bloom into color when the warm water hits the glass. As the glass tiles change color, silhouettes of Mickey Mouse appear around the perimeter of the shower.”
