    Default New iOS-Connected Smart Cup Analyzers and Tracks What You Drink


    For those of you who are on a diet, keeping tabs of what you’re putting into your body has become a little easier thanks to Vessyl, a new Yves Behar-designed smart cup. The Vessyl, analyzes the chemical makeup of its contents and automatically sends the drink’s nutritional information to an iOS device.

    To do this, Vessyl uses a small, proprietary sensor located inside the glass-lined cup to detect what kind of liquid its holding and how fast the user is drinking. It tracks a number of parameters, from standard nutritional information to the brand of the drink, and displays the data using a companion app or via an embedded display on the side of the cup.

    Vessyl’s creators say the 13-ounce cup can handle any kind of liquid that people normally drink. It can even analyze thicker liquids such as yogurt and smoothies. A built-in battery will power the cup’s sensor and display for between five and seven days. The battery can be topped up in approximately one hour using an inductive charging pad which Mark One (one of Vessyl’s creators) calls a “saucer,” that plugs into a wall socket.

    Vessyl is currently available for pre-order directly from the company’s website at a discounted cost of $99. The cups are expected to ship early next year, at which time the price will increase to $199.

    Those of you interested in learning more about it can do so by watching the video below:

    No because it may ruin the non stick surface

    Does it have alternate uses?
    Can I pee in it?
    This could have interesting medical applications...
