Sometimes when I'm working and I'm on the floor picking up
glasses It's hard to tell who has finished their drinks and
hasn't If there were glasses that utilized some sort of
thermochromic glass that changes colour when your drink
approaches room tempreture. this would make the glasses
that nobody has been drinking easier to spot and nobody
would get angry when their half finished beer is picked up
the table. People would also see that their drink was
warm and drink it up straight away (nobody likes warm beer
eccept the English.)
I know that you can get mugs and other novelty items that
change colour when they get warm to expose a
chick or somthing but as far as I'm aware this technology
yet to be implemented in a usefull way in bars.
Heat sensitive mugs
Similar. When mug exceeds 120°F the design changes. [bristolz, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

||Thats the word I was looking for.
||You OBVIOUSLY haven't been to Eskimo Joe's in Stillwater, Oklahoma! During the day, it's a restaurant. After hours, they close the kitchen and keep the bar open. The drinks are traditionally served in dinky plastic cups with the Eskimo Joe's log on them; different colors of up and logo. Not on anything close to a regular basis, sometimes they use cups that do change colors in just the fashion you mentioned! Actually, they're intended for cold drinks, so they change color with cold drinks. As the drink warms to room temp, the color of the cup goes back to what it was. Therefore, the idea is baked.
||Bowner42, I think you did something wrong when you made that link. Would you like to try again? Try the "edit" link to fix it.
||Bowner42, I finally found the website (why doesn't your link work? Dunno!) and if their cups do change colour then they don't mention it in regards to the stuff they sell in their online store.
||Besides, those are cups and I assume they are plastic, from your description, whereas Gulherme's idea was about glassware, so your link doesn't bake it. However, take a look at the British link.
