Nohot: The Cup that Lets You Know When It’s Safe to Drink Your Coffee

by Hazel Chua

How many times have you lifted that little cardboard cup to your mouth, only to recoil in pain once the hot coffee touches your lips and scalds your tongue? If it’s a number higher than one, then I’d say that’s one time too many.

Designers Yang Dongyun, Wu Yichen, Sang Xinxin, Gu Zhiyu, and Lin Xia must agree, since they designed the Nohot interactive cup to put an end to coffee burns once and for all.

Nohot Cup It looks just like a regular coffee-to-go cup, except that it’s got a lid that’s made from heat-sensitive materials. When the drink is still too hot to drink, a circular lump in the middle of the lip expands, so that the person can’t drink the coffee without bumping his or her nose that lump on the lid.

As the coffee reaches a safe drinking temperature, the lump on the cover slowly flattens, so that it’ll look like the regular lids that you see so often on your own daily cup of coffee.

Pretty nifty, isn’t it?

The Nohot cup is a red dot award: design concept winner.

    So it annoys you into not drinking your coffee until it’s near room temperature? 30 C is too cold, that’s way below even kids temperature at the hipster shops.
