Using conductive ink, PositiviTea cups concept allows users to download digital content as they sip their brew of choice.

The Brugo mug's thermodynamic temperature control chamber allows you to have the ideal taste and temperature control while drinking your beverage. If you want to cool your beverage without opening the lid, swill the vessel with a brandy-esque motion. The longer you swill, the cooler the sip.

All the better: This mug is no concept. You can buy it on Amazon.

What's the Kug? It's a kettle. It's a mug. It's both, guys. With a simple twist, it heats whatever liquid you want as you tote it around on your errands, in the car, to class...the portable possibilities of hot beverage consumption are endless.
