Sometimes the best inventions are the simple ones

Gear Factor:

At long last, the wonders of technology have brought a solution to one our species' greatest problems. No longer will we have to suffer the agony and humiliation of eagerly gulping down that first chug of morning coffee only to scald our tongues (or, worse yet, the roofs of our mouths) on the boiling hot liquid. The Smart Lid is coming to save us all.

Made from a plastic that changes color relative to temperature, the Smart Lid will alert us that our coffee is hot before we take that first fateful drink. Bright red means “slow down, cowboy.”

Having just done that this morning, I think this is an invention long overdue.
