When I wake up there’s only one thing on my mind – coffee. A hot, steaming mug of delicious java. The problem is it always cools off halfway during my commute and I lose that soothing warmth. Well, a couple of geniuses have come up with a brilliant thermodynamic solution to this age old problem – Coffee Joulies.
Coffee Joulies are coffee bean shaped stainless steel gadgets that contain a special material inside of them. The non-toxic beans absorb energy as they melt when they reach 60 degrees Celsius. They then cool and solidify, continuously releasing energy to keep your mug of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate warm twice as long. Check out the inventors demonstrating them:
The “beans” aren’t available for purchase yet but if you pledge $40 to their development on Kickstarter, you’ll receive a 20% discount off of the $50 retail price when they’re available.
