Don’t be a mug: Yecup turns your smartphone into a tea making machine

We usually joke around that smartphones are becoming so advanced that they’ll soon be able to make a cup of tea. The YeCup is making that possible…

This travel mug, which has an accompanying smartphone app, uses Bluetooth to heat or cool your drink to the desired temperature.

A notification will pop up on your smartphone when your drink is ready. You do need to charge the mug up, but you can check the battery level by logging into the app.

Other Yecup features

The features don’t just stop there. The mug also comes equipped with sockets to charge your phone, whilst a built-in snapper allows you to take selfies when your phone is placed at a distance.

Don’t take our word for it, though. Watch the video below to see the mug in action.

Yecup developers are also working on the software so the cup is compatible with your Apple Watch. So yeah, it may look like an ordinary flask, but look deeper and you’ll find loads more features.
