Auto-stir coffee mug

self_stirring_mug.jpg

Here comes a device that could eliminate the need to churn in sugar and cream to your coffee. Or tea. Or chocolate. Or, as the official description claims the traditional challenge of adequately mixing honey in a hot drink. Curious? It is a nifty Self Stirring Mug with a miniature battery-operated propeller at the bottom. The propeller spins at 3000rpm, effectively churning the beverage within the cup. It is activated by a tiny button on the handle and runs on 2 AA batteries. The package includes a lid that prevents the liquid from spilling over while it is being churned.

Available at $30 for two mugs at Hammacher Schlemmer. I would find much use of the mug at work for my absolutely vital afternoon cuppa. Now, if only it could also re-heat the beverage within, I would have been one happy customer.

At last a way to stop people from stealing my teaspoons!

Arthur Collins:

I'm working on a travel cup that both heats and cools its contents. It may plug into a lighter socket in your car or sit on a 'induction plate' on your desk powered by 110v./ 50-60Hz. Two interchangable recargable Lithium batteries located in base sustains about an hour's worth of cooling or heating of your preheated or pre cooled contents on their own. Using cigarette lighter plug-in or power base, cup will turn crushed ice into boiling water or warm water into ice slush in about 2 minutes. Small thumb wheel adjustment on side of base allows you to preset your temperature preferences.

Whiplash:

Um.... this brilliant idea has been around for ages. It's called a blender.

Robert Levitt:

I've seen several cups with stirring mechanisms marketed in gift shops over the years.
