YEREVAN. - Young Armenian developers have created the first wireless smart mug of a kind with thermal control. The thermo mug Yecup 365 (Ye- Yerevan, Ye logo) is designed for any weather.
“One can heat up and cool down any liquid from +10 up to +70C through the Yecup app. The mug can also work without a mobile phone, by means of two buttons. When the liquid is ready, you get a message, and if your mobile is away, the logo on the mug notifies with a red or blue light,” the project co-founder Zhanna Barseghyan told Armenian News – NEWS.am correspondent.
cup 365 can also be used to re-charge mobile phones or tablets. The mug is also convenient for people who spend much time driving: re-charging in a car, Yecup functions two times faster.
“The author of the idea is Vigen Sanahyan. We improved it together, and the Qualitech Systems workers helped us with its realization. Armenians, Russian and Jews took part in the entire process of its creation, but we got support from different countries. We worked for about a year to get this product,” Barseghyan noted.
The “magic” mug has already appeared on Indiegogo.com website, and many European and Armenian web-stores have already expressed willingness to buy Yecup. The interest toward the product is great: Applications are received from the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany and Australia.
“Our mug can also cool down water, thus warm countries – India, Brazil, Kuwait, Singapore, etc. – are also interested in it,” she added.
The batch production of the smart mug will begin when the team completes the Indiegogo project. In Barseghyan’s words, they are trying to launch the production in Armenia, but unfortunately the resources are insufficient. Thus, the production of the smart mug might be launched in China.
