The innovative mug that can prevent you from burning yourself while keeping your beverage hot for a longer period of time.
VertiGOmug is a simple, novel and incredibly good looking mug that makes every sip awaken and stimulate your senses. The perfect gift for the ones you love.
Made of ceramics and natural silicone, this product will make every cup a real emotional and comforting experience down to the last drop!
Appreciate the flavor and pleasure without the hassle of drinking an over hot beverage in non user-friendly containers.
Use it every day, everywhere, at home,the office, or on the road. vertiGOmug fits in car cup holders and you can refill it at your preferred coffee shop.
As product designers, we are constantly looking for problems or challenges to be solve. The issues of drinking hot beverages took a lot of innovate thinking.
We have all been scalded by that first sip of too hot coffee, hot chocolate, tea at some time or other!
If you’re like us, drinking coffee from a paper cup or plastic mug is like drinking wine in a foam glass!!! What a disgusting way to enjoy pleasures of a great coffee taste!
You can wait ages for the coffee to be drinkable, then before you know it, it's cold and only good for the sink! What a waste!!!
Mugs and tumblers made of plastics give of toxic vapors when subjected to high temperatures, everyone knows that, right?
Don't be sorry! Billions of paper cups end up in landfill each year because they cannot be recycled.
vertiGOmug, a must have solution:
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could just take 1 or 2 sips at the perfect temperature while the rest of it stays hot, for longer?
Wouldn't it be great if we could always put our lips on the soft and comforting texture of glass or ceramics?
Wouldn't it be really cool to get all these while being environmental friendly, and using food safe materials?
As product designers, we always keep an open mind, using creativity to solve every day needs, providing solutions that improve people's life, we think you deserve it!
Made of ceramics and natural silicone, vertiGOmug is a 12oz (375ml) double wall insulated mug that keeps beverages hot.
You will always feel the luxury of ceramic on lips when drinking.
Drink from our innovative ceramic lid that cools liquids to the temperature you want in seconds, 1 or 2 sips at the time while the remaining beverage is kept hot in the insulated area. You can also remove the top and drink directly from the cup.
Oh! and the sealing lid prevents accidental spills. Isn't that wonderful too!?!
How does vertiGOmug work?
It way it works is very simple, but very cleverly to.
As you saw in the video with our fully functional prototype, you fill the mug with your favorite hot beverage and then put the lid on just like a regular mug or tumbler.
The difference and big advantage is that you don't need to wait for the entire volume to cool before drinking: You push the side button in, this pumps a sip into the cooling zone in the lid.
Simply wait for that sip to cool down to the desired temperature and drink. This operation takes approximately 10 seconds depending of liquid and ambient air temperatures. It may take up to 60 seconds if the liquid is at boiling temperature.
No batteries, no complicated mechanisms, no hassle, easy to clean and dishwasher safe.
Feel free to propose any optimizations, we are open to suggestion and who knows, we may add them before production.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Our first prototypes are 95% finished and have exceeded our expectations at this point in the process!
Only common and minor optimizations such as perfecting the seals are required, this will be done in the tooling process as prototyping is never a perfect solution.
The product and its components may differ slightly from the presented images, but the overall look should be the same. We will work on providing the best possible aesthetics to all the components. It really is as beautiful as in the photos, but we want to push it to the limit of the ''WOW'' factor!
Tooling will start as soon as we reach our funding goal, we don't need to wait for the funding end date.
Tooling should take around 40 days, production is around 30 days. A week or so to send the goods to our warehouses and then shipping to all backers will then be a matter of days.
Backers should start receiving their vertiGOmug from early July on-wards. That is about 2 months after this project has been funded.
