PUMA Basket CC: heat-sensitive shoes. These PUMA Basket CC sneakers are heat sensitive!

PUMA Basket CC: heat-sensitive shoes

For $78.95, you can protect your feet from fire and hot lava!!! How amazing! You can even touch them and make them glow with color! These same color-changing materials can also be found on the PUMA Liga CC and the PUMA Lab II CC. It’s funny that I own all three of the shoes that I just mentioned. Temperature Sensitive Flexible Sheets. Product Details This is a thermochromic, ready to use, vinyl material that is coated with liquid crystal and then covered with a clear polyester over laminate.

Temperature Sensitive Flexible Sheets

These flexible sheets can be cut to size and used to create a touch sensitive color changing graphic that changes from black through the visible spectrum in between the temperature range of 25ºC to 30ºC (77ºF to 86ºF). The black to red color change occurs at 25ºC, the green color starts at 26ºC, the blue color starts at 30ºC and the clearing point when the film changes back to black is 34ºC. The colors observed depend not only on temperature but also on the viewing angle. PLEASE NOTE: This material can not be used outdoors — it will deteriorate very quickly from exposure to UV Light and other elements. The product has a 12-month shelf life if the sheets are stored correctly. Color-changing, heat-sensitive bandage indicates infection. The color-changing, heat-sensitive fiber researchers plan to weave into bandages (Image: Louise van der Werff/CSIRO) Image Gallery (2 images) Australian researchers have developed a fiber that changes color in response to temperature with the aim of creating a smart bandage that can indicate the state of underlying wounds and warn of infection.

Color-changing, heat-sensitive bandage indicates infection

With the ability to show temperature changes of less than 0.5 of a degree Celsius, the smart bandage would allow for easier and faster identification of healing problems that are typically accompanied by an increase or decrease in local temperature, such as infection or interruptions to blood supply. Lead inventor of the color-changing fiber, Louise van der Werff, a CSIRO materials scientist and Monash University PhD student, says that weaving the fiber into a bandage will allow clinicians to determine the temperature across the wound and surrounding tissue.

This isn't the first bandage we've seen designed to indicate infection by changing color. Temperature-Sensitive Glass. Product Details Color-changing dyes and additives have been offered in paper, plastic, and textiles for some time, but this product takes the idea into a new area: glass tiles.

Temperature-Sensitive Glass

Offered in a range of colors and sensitivities, the tiles change color based on ambient temperature, body temperature, or water temperature. The textured glass surface layer protects and highlights the color-change film on the tile. The base color of the tile can match almost any color, and the temperature change point can be fit to the user’s environment and requirements. The dynamic color change begins at the selected activation temperature and shimmers through three phases, one with each 6–10° rise in temperature.

The tiles come in six standard lines. Stone Island Heat Reactive Jacket. *notcot in wearable , 07:18 Thermochromatic goods seem to come and go and never quite disappear… remember when American Apparel brought it back and AZFN did their version too?

Stone Island Heat Reactive Jacket

Well latest to run into is Stone Island’s Heat Reactive Jacket “A hooded bomber jacket in cotton nylon canvas with thermosensitive liquid crystals, the garment changes colour according to the temperature. The fabric of the heat reactive jacket is treated with a thermo-sensitive coating that changes colour at high temperatures. Beginning at 27 degrees the molecules within the micro- capsules of the external strata undergo a rotation modifying the light course. The colour of the garment gradually begins to morph from the dark colour of the surface coating to a much lighter and brighter surface colour.
