Why Haven't Mugs Told Us The Coffee's Temperature Until Now?

If you have $38 to spare and a few weeks to wait for delivery, Brando has a new temperature sensing travel mug that guarantees you'll never again burn your mouth on scalding hot coffee — or accidentally sip a stale brew that's gone cold.

A built-in thermometer lets the insulated mug report back how hot or cold its contents are via a two-digit LCD display on the outside. But if you can't make hide nor hare of the metric system mumbo jumbo it uses to display the temperature, the mug also has a heart on its side that glows blue, orange or red, visually indicating how hot or cold your beverage is. Just don't expect your lawsuit against McDonald's to hold up when you're holding indisputable evidence your coffee was too hot to drink.
