Emerging technologies – those that are currently being developed or will be established in the next 5 to 10 years – are redefining the way we do things. They are blurring traditional techniques and procedures and creating new methodologies and opportunities on scales unseen before. The corporate world has seen modern technologies transform business processes from manufacturing to processing, communication, product design and branding, sales and marketing, and enhanced customer experiences. These technological advancements have not left our homes and farms just the same – we have smart homes and smart farms. There’s no denying the revolutions that disruptive technologies are offering us, changing the way we live, work, communicate, and even eat and drink.
Based in Westlake Village, California, Ember Technologies was founded by Alexander C., an American investor and serial entrepreneur. To help make Ember Technologies a success, they had to partner with Robert Brunner of Ammunition Design Group. They needed this company as the project required their prowess in functionality and aesthetics. They also had to partner with top advisors and entrepreneurs in the US such as Jay Brown of Roc Nation and Phil Mclntyre of Philymack . Some of the investors who funded this idea include Joe Jonas, Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato. Ndamukong Suh, from the NFL, was also a major funder of the idea. They also had to collaborate with Starbucks on this project. The product was released for the first time on 21st November 2016.
Temperature Controlled Ember Mug
After years of engineering and innovative designs, Ember has come to be the leader in the thermal technology developments. Their goal is to change the way people eat and drink in the 21st century. For starters, the company has already developed and patented their first product—a temperature adjustable travel coffee mug.
The mug is designed to cool your coffee to the temperature of your choice. Its battery lasts approximately two hours and has a charging coaster that can keep the cup charged for an indefinite period. Looking at it, you would never tell the mug is bordered by a reflexive cooling system and an active heating system on its walls. Using technology to create smart devices without the users tracing the technology behind it is an objective for Ember. For the mug, the only interface is a wheel at the bottom that you turn to adjust the temperature. You can also fine-tune the controls by installing an app that is available for Android and iOS on your phone. The Ember cup keeps your coffee temperature constant for hours.
It’s the 21st century, and disruptive technologies are here to stay. No longer will the world stick to old procedures for working, communicating, and – as discussed above – eating and drinking. Technology is always improving and changing. New technologies are always being developed, all the time. Developments in technology, therefore, will continue to influence our everyday lives.
