We have talked in the past about smart devices that help us stay fit and monitor our health status, but today we are overwhelmed with excitement at the news related to an intelligent drinking cup.
Some healthy gadgets we presented you with in the past had the power to make us keep smoking at bay or track our fitness levels. This new gadget, named the Vessyl smart cup, does a bit of everything, and then some.
Let’s see a full and detailed description of the cup and highlight its main advantages:
[The cup is] a slim, slightly hefty thermos-looking receptacle — will not only identify and track what you drink and how much of it, but can do so on the fly as it senses the liquid type and breaks it down to its most vital components as soon as it interacts with the cup’s sensor-filled interior. The ultimate utility with Vessyl is not to provide novelty, but to transform how we consume every ounce of liquid throughout the day. Caffeine and sugar amounts, alongside calorie count and a proprietary metric for hydration called Pryme, are tracked through an app on your phone, and bits of that information are also displayed on a screen embedded within the cup itself.
And there is more! The intelligent drinking cup actually monitors your hydration levels due to its powerful sensors. Let’s say you had your morning glass of water. The cup will light up telling you are hydrated within normal levels. At some point in the day, the light bar on the side of the cup will start to fade down, to alert you it’s time to start hydrating again.
The intelligent drinking cup developed by American start – up Mark One is a very useful device for people wanting to lose weight, as it monitors the calories intake of every liquid they sip from the Vessyl. If you have a coffee addiction, the cup will also alert you when you just pumped too much caffeine into your system. The cup also can tell Coca Cola from Pepsi and it can also identify alcoholic beverages, like beer or wine.
Considering many people are paying attention to what they eat and less attention to what they drink, the Vessyl smart cup, working perfectly together with your iPhone, will be the best friend you will have next time you decide between a sip of wine or an orange fresh juice.
You aren’t yet able to buy the intelligent drinking cup, as it is not yet on the market. The manufacturers allow instead a pre – order period to raise the money necessary to produce and deliver the first series of the Vessyl. You can invest in your health by spending $99 pre – ordering the cup now, or wait until next year to have it at its full price of $199. So far, users seeing the Vessyl presentation were pretty amazed with its abilities and voted in favor of its mass production.
