This Cup Might Finally Get You to Drink More Water
Do you drink 8-10 glasses of water a day? How many coffees do you have a day? And how many beers did you knock back last night (that you can remember)? If you don't know the answer to any of these questions, there's a new cup that might change your life ... or at least make you more hydrated, less caffeinated, and more fit.
Vessyl, co-created by Justin Lee (Mark One) and Yves Behar (fuseproject), is like a Fitbit for the liquids you drink. Using sensors, the 13-oz. glass keeps track of what you're drinking, how much you've ingested, and the amount of calories, sugar, fat, protein, and sodium in each beverage. This allows you to understand how hydration affects your energy levels, concentration, sleep quality, and general health. Over time, this data can actually make a huge difference in your life.
Design-wise, as expected by a product created by Yves Behar, the Vessyl is awesome. It's made out of non-stick glass, and you can put hot fluids in it (like coffee and tea) or put it in the fridge to keep your beverage cold. The container is also spill-proof, so you can use it in the car, or as the video shows, to hold your water during workouts. Vessyl has a thin display screen that lights up to show you your consumption data. You get deeper data by syncing it with your smart phone and popular fitness trackers.
Vessyl will be available in early 2015 for $199, but starting today, you can pre-order one for $99.
