12 Awesome Heat Activated Coffee Mugs


There are tons of novelty coffee mugs out there but the most awesome variety are probably the heat-activated ones.

When activated by the heat from your coffee, or some other hot beverage, your mug will magically transform what is displayed on your mug into something else. And by magic I mean science.

Below are some of the best and most clever heat-activated mugs that you can get your caffeine-addicted hands on.

1. Drowsy Eyes Wake Up Mug This mug is designed to mimic  what you go through every morning. First you wake up all drowsy-eyed and lazy, then you pour some coffee in you and shazam! you’re wide awake and ready to take on the day.

Available at Amazon.com

 

 

2. Tank Up Meter Mug This clever mug displays an automobile fuel gauge that will display how much fuel (human fuel that is) you have left in your cup. The red bar will increase or decrease as you fill it up and drink it up.

3. Tetris Heat Change Mug This mug makes a great gift for an old-school gamer (Yes, Tetris is old school now. You’re getting old, deal with it). When you add some hot coffee to this mug it will transform in seconds to a colorful game of Tetris.

9. Monday Morning Mug You can use the Monday morning mug to cheer you up before heading off for another week of 9 to 5.

12. Thinker Mug This mug displays the famous Rodin thinker, showing thoughts and worries we all share – such as money, love, health, family, careers, and so on. But once the heat activates this mug, all those pesky thoughts disappear and are replaced with the solution to most of life’s problems – coffee.
