t.tune / water kettle for tea


The concept t.tune is an assistance for the optimal preparation of tea, without giving presets or restrict the user in it‘s intuitive process. By turning the kettle, temperature and time are adjusted. When no specific temperature or time is needed, the display stays invisible and the device acts as a regular electric kettle. Temperature and rotation are measured exactly by two infrared sensors. The single parts are connected by clips and by clamping so that neither glue nor screws are necessary.
