I've seen many coffee mugs that change their decoration depending on the temperature of its contents, but this has to be the bestest one in the history of bestest gimmicky coffee mugs. Evars. If you are a nerd like me, anyway.
Sometimes it feels like spilling coffee from your mug is inevitable. In fact, it turns out that hunch might be correct: scientists have shown that humans are biologically built to spill.
Just when you thought camera lens mugs were dead and buried now that a $1,300 lens had been turned into a thermos, Photojojo's started stocking two new ones—and best of all, they don't have Canon or Nikon branding.
Your phone has basically replaced an entire 1987 office building at this point, but your coffee mug still merely holds your coffee. That doesn't seem right. The Perk travel mug takes a step toward cramming as much stuff into your mug as your iPhone.
I've got a horrible habit of obsessing over a supposed need to be filled by a product, then instantly forgetting it once I buy it. But I've had a Contigo Autoseal mug for a year. I just bought two more.
This isn't just a mug with a barcode painted on, it's the packaging as well—the barcode can be scanned by a cashier. Designed in Britain, it should be going on sale (and scanned) shortly. [DesignBoom]
I'm clumsy enough that pouring my first cup of coffee each morning becomes a potentially punishing trial of dexterity. So honestly, were I blind, I'd be forced to drink straight from the pot—unless this mug existed.
Though I've never tried it, I guess coffee just doesn't taste as good coming out of an aluminum bag. That's the only reason I can think of for inventing this astronaut coffee cup.
Why drink Joe from a normal mug when you can tease coworkers with this hilarious gravity-defying fused three-cup stack day after day, and get more coffee per serving while you're at it? Who knows, maybe this will serve as the icebreaker you need to chat up that latte-swilling hottie in Finance. If this were ours, we'd…
This Mug! is a mix between coffee mug and a knuckleduster. Comes in two models: Big Mug for guys, decorated with gore, and Girlie Mug, decorated with butterflies. Knowing my wife's tea addiction and her sweet charming character, her Girlie Mug will probably end up looking like the Big Mug, but with real blood. [Mug!]
You know how your coffee cup keeps getting stolen at work? Walk into the break room with this bad boy and firmly proclaim that "this sh*t is going to stop right now." You will feel like a real badass until the police arrive. The cup is a concept design from Simone Brewster, so it is not something you will be able to…
Our father told us that the best way to test whether a steaming cup of anything was cool enough to drink was to just drink it. It wasn't until the fifth time we were in the hospital that we discovered that the man wasn't our father. If we had these heat-sensitive On/Off mugs, which change from the Off position when…
Designed by Hong Kong based design studio Chilli Chilly, these gun mugs feature a porcelain base, a gold or platinum plated trigger, and what appears to be a mock "safety" switch on the side. Great for that morning cup of coffee at work. There is nothing better for taking your career to the next level than letting…
This concept stereo designed by Taguchi Craft, is made to blend in with your kitchen. There's currently no word on pricing, but they're scheduled to pop up around winter 2008. Might be better in a shelf in the kitchen than on the table. I'd keep trying to drink from the midbase driver or something. [Design Spotter via
Using the power of magnetism, David Ye created a self-stirring mug out of LEGO, some magnets and a mug. We thought it would be some kind of weak 10-stirs-per-minute contraption, but the video actually shows that it's like a miniature whirlpool in there. We'd rig one up ourselves, but we're afraid we'd add too much…
