Fingertip Temperature is a ceramic water cup designed for the blind. It has a groove at the front of the handle that connects the inside of the cup to allow blind people to sense temperature with their fingers. When the hot water is about to overflow into the cup, it will flow into the groove and generate heat to transfer to the blind man's fingers, so that he knows the water is about to be filled and stops pouring so as to avoid scalding himself when the hot water overflows.
