Using a heat-activated e-ink display, the design on the Paulig Muki coffee mug can be changed at any time. Users upload photos using a mobile app.

Your choice of coffee in the morning says a lot about you. From the dark, robust flavor found in French Roast to the smooth creaminess found in a cappuccino or latte, coffee drinkers have their preferences. But none of that compares to the true giveaway of who and what you are; the choice of coffee mug says more about you than any other piece of dinnerware in the kitchen cupboard. Especially if it's your own smiling mug staring back at you.

Unlike old standbys like "No. 1 Dad" and "Sexy Grandma," the Paulig Muki smart coffee mug can change with the times. In fact, it can change any time. The coffee cup uses an e-ink display that becomes activated when hot liquid is poured into it. Designed to be used in tandem with a smartphone app, users upload photos to their coffee mug and let the e-ink display tell it like it is.

Of course, there is no requirement to upload selfies -- the Finnish coffee company imagines a social aspect too where friends can have access to the smart coffee cup as well. Currently in beta testing (apply on its website to be a tester), the fun coffee accessory is still a ways away from becoming available to the average Joe.
