Red in the Eye, Blue in the Mouth: the Influence of Visual Cues on Temperature Perceptions

The results of four experimental studies show that mere exposure to red and blue cues influences consumers’ product temperature perceptions. This effect occurs because visual inputs are available prior to haptic inputs, since visual cues can be obtained with a greater degree of non-proximity and sequentially earlier than haptic cues.
