Keephigh / Drink Cooler / Warmer


Drinking is a method of communication, people talk in coffee shops and pubs. They drink coffee and beer, enjoying the mood and time spent with one another. A drinker would never want to drink tepid coffee or warm beer. A drink should keep its original temperature for the user to enjoy the flavor and taste such as Ice cold beer or hot coffee. The concept started from keeping the temperature hot
or cold.

I had to find a technical solution that fits my project. Studying about refrigerating technologies, I found the peltier cell very interesting.Using this. The cup interacts with the drink server plate and it starts to chill or heat the drink.
