It Looks Like an Ordinary Cup, But It’s Got Some Sweet Skills

Of all the cool devices we have now that track our… everything, we can now add another one to the list. Former biomedical computing student Justin Lee and designer Yves Béhar created Vessyl, an electronic cup that identifies and tracks everything you drink from it on your smartphone. As Lee explains,

“Consumption is as important or more important as what we track through exercise, so we developed a sensor that could instantly analyze the nutritional content of what’s inside a beverage … on a molecular level.”

This neat little device, which is seven years in the making, looks pretty cool, but what can it do? Let us show you:

It knows what you put in the cup, and it’s not just basic stuff. According to The Verge, it can tell the difference between different types of Gatorade. That’s neat, right?

 When you drink water from it all day, it also tells you if you are hydrated or not via that little blue light.

Yes it can tell if you are drinking beer too, for those that want to drink beer out of a thermos like cup and count their calories while getting buzzed.

In the coolest feature yet, it tells you how many milligrams of caffeine you are drinking in the coffee you just poured. It’s like a purity test for strong coffee!

It recharges wirelessly by just setting it on that little metal pad (that you plug in).

It sends all the stats of what you drank, how many calories, at what time of the day, etc., all to your phone.

And at the end of the day, when you are in bed, ready to sleep, looking ever everything you drank, you can be just as satisfied as she is.
