Stand Up is a thermal protection for hot drinks including a spring SMA (Shape Memory Alloy) a technology developed by the company NIMESIS, the project partner.
Consisting of a saucer turned beechwood and a honeycomb nonwoven paper, it hides a spring AMF inside.
It unfolds in contact with the heat taking up the honeycomb which isolates the hand from the burning glass.
It takes its original shape on a simple touch and deploys again in a future contact with a hot drink.
