The smart-cup will identify and track what you drink, sense the liquid type and break it down to its most vital components
Washington: Researchers have created a sensor-fitted cup that identifies what you’re drinking and tells you how it affects your health and hydration needs.
The display glimmers to life only when new liquids are poured in
Vessyl, a product from San Francisco-based startup Mark One, will not only identify and track what you drink and how much of it, but also senses the liquid type and breaks it down to its most vital components as soon as it interacts with the cup's sensor-filled interior. The ultimate utility with Vessyl is to transform how we consume every ounce of liquid daily.
Caffeine and sugar levels, alongside calorie count and a proprietary metric for hydration called Pryme, are tracked through an app on your phone, and bits of that information are also displayed on a screen embedded within the cup.
The display glimmers to life only when new liquids are poured in to notify you that, of example, you are drinking coffee, and the amount of caffeine that particular brew will put into your system.
A small pillar of light also tells you how drinking that particular amount of liquid will hurt or help your level of hydration. – Agencies
