Description:
Smart Lids is a colour-changing disposable drink cup lid. Brown in its 'cold' state, it transforms to red when covering a hot beverage. It eliminates the problem of people burning themselves from takeaway drinks, with a visual indication that the contents are hot. It also shows whether or not the lid is securely attached to the cup, the most common cause of spillage.

Unique Benefits:

  • Visual warning that the contents are hot
  • Indicates whether or not the lid is securely attached to the cup
  • Advertising platform for colour changing logos/text to appear and disappear
  • Reduces public liability concerns
  • No retooling costs, it work on all types of lids - flat, domed, or sip through
  • No hidden packaging or transportation costs as weight and 'nestability' are not altered

Status of Innovation:
On sale in Australia since mid 2006 through Australia's largest disposable lid manufacturer. Approximately 500,000 units have been sold. Plans are underway for global export.
