The cup that STIRS ITSELF: Mug that does not require charging or batteries means you’ll never need to use a spoon again!
- Japanese company Gemini has come up with special cup, Aumix, for hot drinks
- Aumix is powered by an internal rotor that uses heat energy to prepare the drink
- After funding success, Gemini is set to produce many more Aumix products
A Japanese company has invented a new high-tech mug that mixes itself.
The Aumix, or ‘automatic mix’ is the name of this technology. Powered by the hot water that you use to prepare your drinks, the cup doesn’t require batteries, charging or any other external power source.
The smart device works thanks to an internal rotor which lets you stay hands-free as your mug stirs your drink for you.
The Aumix is powered by hot water that is poured into the cup in order to prepare your drinks. This means that you won’t need to waste any time on charging, batters or external power sources
You can have anything stirred by your magic mug, as long as the liquid is hot, which makes it the perfect portable office mug.
The understated design that comes in neutral colours not only suits an office interior, but its invisible functions might wow your colleagues. You could also limit desk-clutter by leaving your spoons and stirrers in the kitchen.
This gadget uses the energy from the heat that evaporates into the air and converts it into kinetic energy instead. This spins the cup’s rotor and mixes the drink.
‘320 milliliters (10.8 ounces) of boiling water loses about 60,480 joules of energy as it cools to a comfortable drinking temperature,’ told Aumix’s designers to Japanese news blog Sora News 24.
This undrinkable excess heat is then used as the source of power.
The main drawback of this mug is that its internal rotor is only activated with heat and so the cup is limited in its self-mixing abilities.
The traditional method of stirring is still recommended for all cold drinks. Gemini recommends using the tech for mixing in milk, sugar, honey or other enhancements to your hot beverage of choice.
Gemini began looking for funding for their new product through crowdfunding on Japanese website Campfire and has since raised over 7,600 percent of its target. After this initial popularity, we are likely to see a lot more of the Aumix range.
Japanese company, Gemini, is the brains behind a new tech trick that means you will never need to stir your drink again. The understated design suits any workplace or office
