Description:

Each Pulse glass is filled with a liquid that expands when heated, much like the liquid in a thermometer. If your hands are warm, you can get the liquid to completely move into the upper chamber. Then the air will bubble up into the liquid giving the illusion of boiling. These are sometimes sold as "love meters".
