When Power Practical came to me with an engineering concept for a heated smart mug, my exploration revealed that a mug can be a very intimate object; a friend who brings warmth, comfort, and caffeine. Good friends put their tech away for personal interactions. Jul keeps its tech hidden while responding to tactile input with subtle visual cues.
