Color Changing Dress Cup

Naked Lady Ceramic Mug Only Appears with Hot Water

- - 0 Comments

Ceramic cups that change color when hot water is poured into them is just about as gimmicky as those Hypercolor t-shirts.  Remember those?  They changed color when your body temperature increased, otherwise known as sweating.  They were hot for all of 5 minutes and then concerns, at least in our...

While we haven’t been afforded the opportunity to test out the Bamboo Blackbox Cases (hint, hint!), we’re gonna go out on a limb (a bamboo limb) and just straight up assume that they’re the most  bad ass of Apple laptop and iPad cases on the market today…made from wood. So, they’re probably a...
