Ember is on a mission to create enjoyment by adding precise temperature control to the way we eat and drink. We worked in partnership to create the company’s first product–the Ember Mug–the world’s most advanced temperature adjustable mug for enjoying coffee and other drinks exactly the way you like them.
Ember was designed to add comfort to drinking your favorite beverage, not to force interaction with complex controls or quantify drink consumption. Our goals with the design were to use Ember’s technology to lightly augment the things people already expect from their favorite mug, and to add as few visible features as possible.
A subtle capacitive touch button behind the Ember logo powers on the mug and reveals an LED temperature display. Temperature can be adjusted using a bottom dial or the with the Ember app. The app can also remotely adjust the mug’s temperature, send a notification when your drink reaches your set temperature, save preset temperatures for different drinks, and check battery level. The mug keeps drinks at a set temperature for up to 2 hours on the go, or all day when used with the charging coaster.
