This is the idea for the world’s first Wi-Fi connected mug to broadcast your mood to the world of the internet! Some folks may think of this as being strange, but for anyone engaged in social networking such as Twitter, Foursquare and Facebook they used to telling the world how they are feeling and what they are doing, so this mug would just another extension of that.
The mug has been designed for the Fujitsu Design Award: A Life with Future Computing competition, which is being organized by designboom! The mug has all of the right qualities for this sort of competition, it is innovative and exciting too, and I would buy one for sure, if this ever got onto the market.
These are details for the world’s first Wi-Fi connected cup according to the designer Nikita Mokhirev;
‘smile cup’ by nikita mokhirev from Estonia is one of the seven entries that received the ‘judge’s special award’ among over 3000 participants from our recent designboom competition ‘a life with future computing’, organized in collaboration with FUJITSU and DA – design association Japan.
