I was lucky enough to be accepted as part of the beta testing team for the Paulig Muki smart mug. A full review of the mug will be available on The Tech Dive once it arrives but in the mean time I thought I’d write a little about the idea behind the mug.
Using a heat-activated e-ink display, the design on the Paulig Muki coffee mug can be changed at any time. The coffee cup uses an e-ink display that becomes activated when hot liquid is poured into it.
The Finnish coffee company imagines a social aspect where friends can have access to the smart coffee cup through the app, allowing them to upload photo’s to your mug.
The mug is slated to hit stores in 2015 in Finland, with international collaborations pending. They’re currently taking pre-orders on their site, find out more here.
Stay tuned, more information coming soon!
