Temperature-Sensitive Glass Tiles


Home decor at an extreme? These individually hand-made temperature-sensitive glass tiles are a new item on the market. Colors vary according to the temperature of whatever comes into contact with it (ie. your hand, water, air temperature). Think mood rings.

It utilizes Moving Color™ technology and can be purchased online through Inventables. A single 4x4x3/8” tile runs roughly $16 and a square foot runs about $150. Have a specific size, design, or color in mind? You can have tiles custom-made according to your taste. It is also a green product and uses 20 – 80% recycled glass. They are marketed for use on floors, walls, and countertops.  Take a look:



Thanks to bookofjoe for his original post. I’m a big fan design-wise, but realistically speaking? I think it’s too pricey of a product. What are your thoughts?

    I totally agree that they are too expensive, but OMG I *LOVE* them in the shower!

    Reminds me of the Hypercolor shirt I had in high school and loved. And wore in my junior year class photo. With fake glasses. 😉

    SO cool!
