February 20, 2009 Now here’s a clever idea for tired, stressed-out new parents. Picture the scenario, it’s three o’clock in the morning, baby is screaming for milk and you accidentally pop a bottle that is too hot into a hungry, little mouth. Not a pleasant thought! The Baby’s Bottle could stop all those late night accidents as it tells you, at a glance, when the milk is at exactly the right temperature.

The design involves a bottle with a face printed on it using thermochromic anti-forgery ink. When the milk is at the ideal temperature of 38 degrees Celsius, the face will wear a smiley, green grin. Make the milk too hot, at 45 degrees Celsius or hotter and the face will turn into a red, crying, “I’m not happy” face.

The bottle was designed by Huang Tzu-Yu, Cheng Hung, Wang Tzu-Wei, and Xiang Yu-Wei and is not yet in production. No doubt, new parents will be queuing up.
