Finnish coffee maker Paulig has developed the first ever e-Ink mug that uses the heat from coffee to produce a picture on the side of the cup. You’ll find a new, surprising or moving picture on the cup’s screen every single time you fill it.
The Muki will pair with your smartphone via Bluetooth and this is the source of the text, pictures of video. The company will also be releasing an official app that will help with the syncing of all media content. The energy to power the electrical components is gained from the heat of the mug’s filling. Beta testing begins this August and the mug will begin mass market shipping in early 2015.
