The Heat Sensitive Thinking Putty will help you squish your way to new ideas

Heat sensitive thinking putty

There comes a point with any creative job that you develop a mental block. Most of the time, it’s not that you’re not capable of working anymore, more that your brain is so entrenched in what you’re working on that you can’t see the next step, or what to improve on. This normally means you just need to step away for a little bit, but it’s always nice to have a bit of a distraction to occupy your brain and force it to think about something other than what you’re working on.

If your brain needs a way to keep itself busy, then you’ll need something mildly thrilling enough to pull you from your project, but will also get boring after a while. Of course, you can always stare at the pipe screen saver for an hour, but it might be better to do something that will keep you the slightest bit active, like playing with this Heat Sensitive Thinking Putty. It brings back memories of mood jewelry you might have had as a kid, which change color based on temperature. However, this will only change between a darker and lighter color.

This is odorless, will never dry out, and isn’t greasy, so it won’t make a mess all over your desk. As far as your choices go color-wise, there is a blue and green that will change into lighter versions of themselves, a purple that changes to pink, and an orange that changes to yellow. These will cost you $15 a pop, undoubtedly taking up your brain space for about 20 minutes, and would be pretty fun to play with too. Just don’t let your boss catch you squishing putty around your desk on more than one occasion.
