Aurora Borealis Heat Changing Mug

The northern lights are no longer the dominion of cold-blooded Canadians or Japanese tourists trying to have a lucky baby: effective immediately, Think Geek is bringing aurora borealis to your breakfast table in the form of a 12oz, thermal-sensitive, mug. Fill the mug with hot java, and watch the skies light up!

“Caffeine. It makes us light up. It excites us. The thought of that first cup of coffee can really get us moving in the morning, literally and figuratively,” explains Think Geek.

“Much as caffeine particles pass into our bloodstream and make us bounce off walls, so, too, the particles from solar winds pass through the Earth’s magnetosphere near the poles and share energy, causing a spectacular display in the upper atmosphere. When these particles collide with oxygen in particular at lower altitudes (up to 150 miles), the photon released appears green or yellow, giving a similar light show as to the one captured on this mug when you fill it with warm liquid.”
