Heatswell cups – coming to a coffee shop near you?

So this is pretty cool; inventor Scott Amron has come up with a really interesting product for the hot beverage industry. We’ve told you about another product Scott came up with, the split ring key, which didn’t seem quite so useful.

The current technology involves using a thick piece of paper that has to be applied every time a cup of coffee is poured. The Heatswell cup incorporates a heat sensitive, biodegradable paper that is attached the cup during manufacture, which insulates and reacts to temperature. The Heatswell paper reacts dramatically, and can incorporate 3D effects and logos as well.

More information is available on the Heatswell website. Run a coffee shop? Ask for a few and see how they work.
