The Perfect Coffee Mug


Over the last couple of years now I have really taking a liking to coffee and HAVE to have at least one cup in the morning.  Some days I require more.  As any avid coffee consumer knows, if you do not drink your coffee at a ‘quick” pace, the coffee can be come room temperature quickly.

Well, some Physicists from Fraunhofer Institute have created the Perfect Coffee Mug.  The mug is able to maintain the beverages exact temperature for 30 minutes.  The Perfect Mug has some pretty cool things going on inside of it.  Inside there’s an aluminum structure which gets filled with PCM, (Phase Change Material).  PCM is a substance used in construction of witer clothing and is capable of storing and releasing heat or cold.

In its original state it is a solid but. Then, when it receives heat, it absorbs it like a sponge liquifying into a gooey wax. As the PCM solidifies it releases the energy at a steady pace, keeping any liquid or room at the perfect temperature. In houses, they achieve this by filling hollow walls with PCM, which absorbs heat from the sun, and then releases it as the atmosphere cools down, keeping the room at a perfect temperature.

Sounds like a lot of science.  Which is all good and neat, just hurry up and MASS PRODUCE IT ASAP please!
