A solution to the common desire for a radiator-Slinky hybrid

But what if you touch it?

Bisque

"I've always wanted a radiator that looks like a Slinky." Sound like a familiar wish? Yeah, I'm sure it is. And even if it's never crossed your mind to want a radiator-Slinky mashup, you might still agree with my view that radiators need to be prettier . Consequently, you may be interested in this Hot Spring Radiator manufactured by the UK company Bisque. (Get it? Hot spring? Ha ha ha!) But here's my beef with it--what happens when your friends come to visit your Hot Springed-out living space, don't realize that those pretty twisty sculptures are actually radiators, and decide to touch 'em?

Yeeeeeeowch.
