It is obviously a matter of individual perception but what bothers me most in winters are cold feet. One can get hands warm by doing all sort of stuff (no pun here) but feet demand external heating. That is why Tom Curlewis has come up with a concept heater called Friendly Foot Heater. This student of Newcastle University is irked by constant misuse of electricity in contemporary designs so he remodeled the heater to heat up from the toe end of our body. Efficient and safe, the Friendly Foot Heater allows user to get into actual contact with the warm surface of the appliance and speeds up the transfer of heat. This would cut down the usage of the heater itself to a great degree and thus lead to considerable savings of energy. The heater also results into proper usage by incorporating a motion sensor that switches it on only when the user is detected. The range of temperatures also gets simplified and the element as a result uses much less power than the conventional designs. The round shape and color scheme add to the physical attractiveness of the whole concept; in fact the outer ring (injection molded thermo-plastic) can be taken off and put on in different colors to change the appearance of the product. User-friendly, safe and resourceful, the Friendly Foot Heater is a product that has got a lot going for it.
