I am always in favor of items and products that eliminate the mundanity of everyday life. Anytime we can use technology to minimize repetitive tasks, we can then focus our energy towards ones that matter to us. One example of a useless task I do every day multiple times a day is stirring milk ands sugar into my coffee. With the self stirring coffee mug, I save time, energy, and most importantly materials! It eliminates the waste associate with plastic stirrers and spoons. While I love the premise of this product, I do think that the design can be improved through personalized mug designs, or even just simpler mug designs that don’t scream “self stirring mug.”
