Spice up your morning shower by singing a little song and watching the colors change in your new temperature-sensitive wall tiles from Inventables. Responding to heat from your bathwater, the tiles shift shades over three phases, manifesting a different color for each 6 - 10 degree rise in temperature. The tiles also respond to changes in air temperature, body heat (not unlike those mood rings girls used to wear in the ’70s) and other hot or cold sources. Made of 20 - 80% recycled glass, they’re not only different from those boring old everyday tiles, they’re a green product to boot.
The glass tiles can be created to match almost any decor and come in six different textures. You can also choose specific temperature-activated color change points to suit your needs and wants - maximum range for the “Liquid” line is -30°C (-22°F) to 120°C (248°F) - and you’re not limited to using these trendy tiles in your shower stall either; you can also incorporate a new kind of floor mosaic in your foyer or countertop.
