Higgs Boson Mug Serves Up Two Scoops of Science With Your Coffee

By Andrew Liszewski on at

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but why just feed your body after you've rolled out of bed in the morning? Feed your mind, too, with ThinkGeek's heat-sensitive colour-changing Higgs Boson mug which enlightens you with details about the Large Hadron Collider and what it's hunting for.

At all times the $10 (£6) mug features graphics and text descriptions of the LHC's six major components. But when filled with a warm beverage, a visualisation of a proton collision appears. It's more enlightening than reading yesterday's sports scores at breakfast, and certainly more entertaining than what you'll find in the comics section of today's papers. [ThinkGeek]
