Ember! The Smart Mug

By Sharmini Jayawardena


Voted Time magazine’s best invention for 2017, Ember, the world’s first temperature control ceramic mug, is selling itself, with its intelligent features, especially by not letting your hot beverage get cold! They’ve achieved it, when it comes to getting that mug done to a perfection!

It reminds you that your coffee or tea is ready by reflecting the temperature on your phone! Be-leaf!

“The smartphone-controlled mug keeps coffee at the perfect temperature for longer. Users can control the temperature of the Ember coffee mug via an app or with a twist of the mug’s base.”

“The 12 ounce (350ml) Ember mug uses patented phase-change heat and cooling technology to keep the coffee or tea inside at a preferred temperature for around two hours. Phase-change materials shift from one state to another when exposed to different temperatures. …”

“This type of material has a wide-ranging potential, with researchers exploring its use in construction, robotics, new kind of refrigerators (smart refrigerators), and of course, coffee mugs.”

“To refuel, the mug is placed on a wireless charging pad, which doubles as a coaster and restores it to full charge in 1.5 hours.” –
