Thermal Ring

Our Idea

Who are we?

Yingjie Xu, a petroleum engineering graduate student with basic understanding of material science and have many friends in material engineering.

I have a little cousin, who right now shower in the baby bathtub(in my home country – China, many families do not have bathtub even water heater), I’d like to help my little cousin to feel the world. Meanwhile, I do have the ambition that my product is able to show the right range of temperature as well as  save water.

What are we offering?

A thermal ring can change two colors with temperature, one color means comfortable another means too hot. This kind of ring can be attached on the shower head, tap or directly put into water. Meanwhile, the color will fade when water is not warm enough.

Who are we offering it to?

I would like to offer my product to

  • babies and children
  • people who have sensitive skin;
  • people with low version;
  • environmentalist(people who want to save water)

Why does that person care?

  • To improve comfortable and safety
  • To improve life quality
  • To save water
  • To save time, because it takes less time to wait for comfortable water from tab as you can see the temperature change directly

Our distinctive competencies

  • Change colors based on the temperature
  • Can be easily attached or directly put into water
  • Cost friendly
  • A more direct way to show the temperature
  • Reduce the time to wait for comfortable water

The substitutes & alternatives

 

  • Electrical thermometer
  • Mercury thermometer
  • Hand touch

    Interesting idea to use a color ring to show temperature changes, I think small kids cannot refuse this colorful ring. comparing with a normal thermometer if people can not see numbers clearly, they still see the color change, I really like this idea.
