Smartcup / Thermocup


The Smartcup bases on thermochrome-technology. Four heat-conducters at the internal chase releasing heat to the thermochrome-lacquering. During influence of thermal heat it changes the colour and advises the user against potential dangers based on drinks which are too hot or too cold.
Because of the function which bases completely on the heat of the drink itself, it does not need any digital technology or power supply. The smartcup is perfectly in one's hands because of the little matted grip and the ergonomical form. It is ideal suitable for stowage in bags and backpacks due to its closing and valve technolgy.
