This is easily one of those thoughtful inventions that promise to improve our day to day life and rid us of that subconscious guilt we all suffer from on account of wasting resources every now and then. While no one deliberately wants to waste water considering the number of people in the world dying of thirst and dirty drinking water, but it still happens. Donât we all just pour water in a glass, drink as much as we want, and simply pour the left over water down the sink, without any second thoughts at all? But once this steam mug hits the market, most of us shall not indulge in this wasteful practice any more.
Designed by Young-Suk Kim, this eye-catching, colorful mug is more than a means to ingest your daily fix of coffee or tea; it is in fact a steam mug. So what exactly does it do? It is a kind of a mug that uses whatever little water is left over in it to create steam, which humidifies the room. Hence, more than a mug, it can be called your very own small, compact, portable humidifier.
What most people either donât know or realize is the fact that our present lifestyles are such that most of our skin and hair afflictions, along with the perennial threat of common coughs and colds, are directly or indirectly due to the constant dry, artificial or recycled air that we are subjected to for long duration of time. Due credit goes to the central air conditioning being an important member, in most, if not all homes and offices today.
This steam mug comes as a two piece set in the form of a mug and a saucer like tray which has its own USB cable attached to it, which you can connect to whatever kind of computer you have on your desk. The moment you finish drinking the desired amount of water out of the mug and place it back on the saucer, the tray automatically gauges the amount of left over water and heats it till it becomes steam, which you can then feel emitting gently around you.
This cool humidifier is, therefore, just the perfect solution to the dry atmosphere surrounding us. It creates moist and warm steam and promises to ensure that we stay healthy and fresh throughout the day. The best bit about this mug is also the fact that it hardly takes any space, looks like an ordinary cup or mug, and is colourful enough to display and use anywhere, especially in offices where you canât even crack a window.
