The hills have lotion?

hothotIt’s interesting how defense techology can help the private sector. A New Mexico entrepreneur recently joined up with Sandia labs to create a hand creme that warms as you rub it on. The microencapsulation technology used has been seen in other products, like scratch and sniff stickers, but this is the first time it’s been applied to this type of product.

Now I find this to be a little bit frightening. Does the lotion make you glow? More importantly, is there a limit to the level the lotion warms to? Will the heat increase the more you rub it? If so, this product should probably be kept away from high school aged males.
