Wouldn't it be great if you could check the temperature of your shower without having to risk burning your hand if the water's too hot? Well, materials company Moving Color Inc. could have just the thing for you: Bathroom tiles that change color according to how hot the water is. The company is offering a range of tiles that change color when touched by a person or by water.
Buyers can select the temperature range at which the tiles start changing color, and each 6 to 10°F rise in temperature results in three color-phase changes. Mind you, all this convenience comes at a price — standard-sized tiles cost around $17 each. Then again, what price for not getting your hand scalded when testing the shower?
