Don’t Miss One Second Of TV With This Specially Shaped Mug

television-watching-beer-mug

What a time to be alive! The TV Beer Mug is a plastic mug with the top part shaved off at an angle. Why? Well, so you can still see the TV when you bring it up to your mouth to drink, of course! It’s not a problem I noticed I had, because I think my brain shuts off momentarily while I sip my beer, much like I don’t notice myself blinking; it’s just something that happens, and happens often. But not that I’ve seen this product, it makes me wonder how I lived.

Sadly it seems to be made for right-handed drinkers only, but for the sake of not missing a single millisecond of whatever it is you’re watching, you could always just suck it up and drink with the “wrong” hand. It’s $11.

Global Warming Mug Shows You What Happens When The World Gets Hotter

global-warming-mug

As far as pick-me-ups go, waking up in the morning to a visual reminder that a good chunk of the world will one day be under water is about as good as it gets. The Global Warming mug uses heat sensitive paint that shows you just which parts of the world are likely to end up underwater once the planet gets hot enough. Which it will, since we’re pretty much cooking the crap out of it. Looks like Florida’s a goner, along with most of the Eastern sea board and… is that Panama there in the middle? In any case, for $19, it could make an awesome gift for that Global Warming Denier in your circle…

These Zombie Mugs Are Ultra-Realistic, Whatever That Means

slow-zombie-1

I mean… as much as we like to imagine they’re real, zombies don’t exist. Ok? I don’t wanna burst anyone’s bubble, but it’s true. So, you know, that “realistic” tag is kind of funny… But if they were real, sculptor Turkey Murck’s Slow Zombie mugs would be as realistic looking as I’ve ever seen. They’re all cast from a hand-made mold, made out “of stoneware, coated in a food-safe glaze and fired to 2200 (F) degrees to ensure it is completely functional, durable and safe to drink from. All cast mugs are dishwasher and microwave safe.” They’re also not cheap, at $220 a pop. They’re completely sold out, but Turkey is planning to release a second batch in February. You can sig up on his website to signal your interest.

The Ember Mug Will Keep Your Drink Warm For You All Day

ember-1

Drinking coffee at the exact temperature you enjoy is like trying to hit a moving target; first it’s scalding, then it ends up lukewarm or cold within minutes. Ember is a pretty brilliant smart connected mug that first cools down your beverage quickly to your preferred temperature, then keeps it there all day. You set the temp by twisting the base, or by connecting the mug to your smartphone. If you do that, you’ll have the added benefit of being notified when your drink has cooled down to its optimal temp. The internal battery will then warm your liquids for up to two hours, or all day if you set Ember down on the wireless charging coaster that it comes bundled with. It’ll pair with an Apple Watch as well, or any iOS or Android device with Bluetooth 4.0 or later. It’s a $129 pledge, down from its expected $149 retail cost.

Coffee Mug With Integrated Pipe

Coffee-Mug-With-Pipe-In-Handle

If the first thing you want to do when you get up in the morning is smoke up, we might want to suggest you could have a problem. Then again, we don’t judge and if that’s how you chose to live your life, then all the power to ya! So wouldn’t it be great if you were able to take a sip of your morning Joe and have a little toke at the same time, from the same vessel? That’s exactly what the Pipemug lets you do. They’re intended for tobacco use only (wink wink), and feature a fully functional pipe, with the mouthpiece on the handle and the chamber sticking out like a mushroom on the side. Prices start at $49 and don’t seem to go much higher than $60.

redesign_tocc_CameraMug_MF

You could drink your gallon of coffee like a regular person and let it get cold as the day goes by. Or you could show the world you’re a fan of photography, while at the same time keeping your beverage hot (or cold) for longer thanks to this Camera Lens Mug’s insulated walls. It’s shaped to look like a 24-105mm lens, but instead just contains liquids. It’s normally $50, but today is a much more reasonable $20.

Coffee Mug Keeps Your Coffee At The Optimal Temperature

temperfectmug

The Temperfect mug looks like a regular everyday coffee mug, but it isn’t. Instead of keeping your drink piping hot for as long as possible, this device aims to cool it to a drinkable temperature quickly, and then to maintain it there for an extended period of time. It does this by replacing the air in the double walls with a special material, which Dean Verhoeven, the creator, is calling “Material X”. It’s solid at room temperature but melts when heated, storing large amounts of energy in the process; this has the effect of cooling the liquid inside. But since the “Material X” stored all that heat, it is able to transfer it back to your coffee as it cools, keeping it warm for longer. It’s the same exact principle that we saw in the Coffee Joulies 2.5 years ago, only now in a more practical form factor than little metal pebbles that you carry separately.

Unfortunately, we seem to remember testing showed the Coffee Joulies didn’t do such an amazing job at what they claimed to do, extending the coffee’s temperature sweetspot by an almost negligible amount. However, that doesn’t mean the Temperfect will suffer the same fate. Thermodynamics is a complex field and for all we know, mug-shaped is more efficient than pebble-shaped. If you want your own, you’ll have to pledge $40 to the fully funded Kickstarter.
