A chilled carafe of water, or is it?

It’s official: Boston is having a heat wave. I almost keeled over walking to the T today while carrying (among other things) my lunch, my laptop, my Tom Wolfe hardback novel, and of course, the heaviest object of all, my wallet. It sure would have been nice to have this cold carafe of water on-hand. Oh wait, there’s a cool carafe right there!

But look twice: It’s not really sweating from the heat, it’s actually frosted to give the effect of an excessively cool beverage. The design makes your mind think the water is colder than it (probably) is and entices you take a sip.
