The days of too-hot or lukewarm beverages are over. Ember mug, the world’s first temperature controlled mug, uses an app to adjust its contents’ temperature to your preferred heat. Too hot? Ember mug will rapidly cool it. Too cold? The mug will heat up your coffee or tea to the perfect drinking temperature. Enjoy your warm beverage for up to two hours on the go, or all day if you use the charging coaster that is included with your mug’s purchase.
How Does It Work?
The Ember mug took seven years of prototypes to hit the market. An active heating system, combined with a phase change cooling system keeps your beverage at a consistent temperature. Using the app, coffee and tea-lovers can create presets for specific drinks and remotely adjust the temperature of their beverage. Now that is a smart mug!
How many times have you, eager to drink your Starbucks coffee, burned your taste buds off your tongue? No more! This technology has effectively solved the major issues coffee drinkers face. No longer do you have to wait impatiently for the drink to cool, nor are you condemned to lukewarm bean water. The Ember mug is leak-proof and as portable as a regular travel mug, but with all of the perks of being a “smart” product. You don’t even need the app to control it – most controls can be utilized on the mug itself.
The Future of Ember
Look out for more self-heating and cooling products by Ember in the future. They’ve got a product lineup that will revolutionize the way people enjoy beverages and food. Self-chilling wine glasses and water bottles, self-warming plates and soup bowls, and baby bottles that heat to 98.5 degrees and will track your baby’s consumption of formula or milk throughout the day, are what they’ve revealed for Ember’s future thus far. Personally, I’m waiting on those wine glasses.
Pricing and Availability
How much is it, you ask? The Ember mug is not for the faint of wallet. A high-end product demands a high-end price – such is the case here. For $149.95, the Ember mug is not for everyone. If the product lasts over a year, then I’d say it’s worth it just to keep your taste buds intact. Even if it lasted only a year, your investment would come out to about $12.50 a month. For heavy coffee consumers, this may be a better option than having to ditch your half-finished, lukewarm coffee in the trash.
