Keeping your coffee or tea at the ideal temperature has always been a problem whether you are working full time or at a home office. This problem has been solved by the “Glowstone Smart Mug” which is capable of keeping your drinks hot until you finish them.
Those among you whose maximum time is spent working while drinking coffees and teas during day, the Glowstone mug is the best option for temperature control. Hence, there is no need to take a break for refreshing your drink as it gets colder or gulping your coffee while it’s hot.
Not only it saves your time, but also it is available in many classy colours and hence has all the abilities to become your favourite mug to use in the morning. In addition to this, the drink can also be kept at the same temperature with the help of your smartphone’s battery.
Thomas Gostelow, a 23 year old guy, is the man behind the creation of the Glowstone. Every possible way was tried by him to keep his coffee at the same temperature, like reheating his coffee in the microwave or using thermal mugs made from metal or plastic etc., however after all these failed solutions, he came up with his own smart mug, made from fine bone China, which doesn’t change the taste of whatever is in it, strong and is a healthy and lightweight material.
The fully automatic smart mug Glowstone was made by combining the fine bone China, which is an extremely good ceramic, with the latest technologies. Currently, a Kickstarter campaign to develop his product is being run by him and he has already reached half of his goal.
It does not have any button or remotes, instead it has a ‘sense’ which turns on when it detects the drink is getting colder. Lights appearing on the base implies that it is starting to heat your drink to keep it warm for 30 minutes. It can also be used with all types of popular coffee machines.
There is no need to worry about turning it off once you drink the last sip because the Glowstone mug has the ability to turn off automatically when you finish your drink. It is counted among the only smart mugs on the market.
As washing mugs by hand is really an irritating thing to do, especially the ones with any kind of electric base. Well, you will be glad to know that the Glowstone is dishwasher safe, so you can just put it in the machine without worrying about it.
Besides, there is no need to struggle with cables on your table to recharging the mug as the Qi coaster can be used to re-charge even your smart phone. It comes with a standard micro USB lead and plug-in power adaptor. However, the charger can be connected to any USB socket as like your laptop or computers.
Almost 18 months were spent on refining the design by the creator, Thomas Gostelow, who is a mechanical engineer.
“Within a 22mm (0.9″) deep recess in the base, we have sealed two rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, a film thermistor, a heater, a wireless power receiver and other sensors and electronics that make it fully automatic and easy to use.”
“One of the biggest obstacles in the product development was being able to both effectively measure and pass heat through the base of a ceramic mug. As you may be aware, it is not easy to do this through an insulating material with an uneven surface. After various iterations of mugs, heaters, thermistors and software we found a combination that was able to deliver all the functions that we intended to include.”
