Have you ever taken a swig from your water bottle during a long summer hike only to be greeted by lukewarm, hardly refreshing water? If so, you’re in luck: A new Indiegogo campaign has launched for the Yecup 365, an adjustable smart mug that you can control with your smartphone to cool or boil liquids within minutes.
Introduced on Tuesday by Yecup Technologies, the Yecup 365 can store as much as 14 ounces of liquid at your desired temperature from 50 to 158 degrees Fahrenheit for up to eight hours at a time. It can be controlled by buttons on the side of the mug, or by a smartphone app that notifies you when your drink reaches its desired temperature.
Designed to be completely spill proof, the Yecup allows you to confidently place a full mug of coffee in your backpack or gym bag without worry about it spilling all over your belongings, and if that isn’t enough, the battery on the Yecup 365 will actually allow you to charge your smartphone or tablet up to three times before you have to recharge it.
Currently less than one day into its monthlong campaign, the Yecup 365 has already raised more than $11,000 of its initial goal fundraising of $30,000. With early bird pricing ranging from $109 to $129 for the 12 and 14 ounce varieties of the mug, there’s still time to save off the predicted retail price of $180, with preorders set to ship in September.
