I've seen a few of these around, albeit now fancy software giving you coffee diagnostics :)




A friend of mine works for an electronics company that stocks USB coffee warmers. I don't think it comes with any jazzy software, nor am I sure about the look of the cup - it reminds me a little of a bin. I am assured, however, that it does a fine job of preventing cold coffee!

Thank you very much for taking this up, Tina.
Yeah, I first thought a coaster like the ones Peter and Harley introduced is more realistic because the cup has to get WET to be washed.


freelanceswith mentioned one too:


you need a usb thermometer: http://www.pocket-lint.co.uk/news/news.phtml/11317/12341/Brando-Offers-USB-Thermometer-gadget.phtml

Take the cover off and attach it to the mug via a wire.

Then use flash to interpret the data and use it to control the power to a second usb heating device like the ones mentioned above.

simple really.


ThinkGeek has a mug warmer, not quite a plug in cup, but it might suffice
