About

Working in conjunction with your smart phone, Coaster Talk is a smart coaster that tracks and analyzes both water and milk intake for infants and adults. This in turn leads to healthier drinking habit

Coaster Talk is Ideal for:

  • ˙Adults who don’t drink enough water on a daily basis
  • ˙Caretakers who wish to record the amount of milk consumed by a child

The Origin of Coaster Talk

 

When my lovely baby girl was born, doctors told us her size was below average. It was suggested that we become more attentive to the amount of milk she has every day. We were given a worksheet to use, but many mistakes were made during recordings. When we discussed our problem with friends, we discovered that they too had similar issues. After a lot of discussion, I thought it would be a good idea to create this device. After the prototype was developed, I realized the coaster could also be used to monitor my daily water intake. This served as a reminder to consume more water. In the past, I suffered through a kidney stone so I’d like to prevent another painful episode from happening again.

 Water and You

 

By the time your body notices that it’s thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. Thirst signals activate when your body is sensing a %1-%2 water loss. Chronic dehydration arises through a lack of awareness in consuming enough water. This gives rise to a general weakening of the body and can cause a multitude of health problems. A large percentage of people suffer from dehydration. This stems from the body being less susceptible to thirst in a dehydrated state. 

 Milk and Child

The amount and frequency of milk feeding is crucial for baby development. Overfeeding can cause obesity whereas underfeeding can lead to malnutrition and underdevelopment. Busy schedules can prevent parents from keeping proper worksheets that monitor water/milk intake. Coaster Talk lightens the load from a time consumed day and stores all the vital information electronically.

Water & Milk Monitoring

Our product keeps track of how much you and your child have drunk. Our algorithm is precise and has an observation error of only +- 10 ml. This ensures that the results are as accurate as possible.

Intelligent Water Intake Plan

Based on your personal profile as well as environmental data, the Coaster Talk application can create a personalized water drink plan that is tailed to your needs. In turn, this data is stored in the coaster using Bluetooth technology. The user also has the option to input their information manually. Our app’s meticulous design has a clean aesthetic that will display your daily water intake in an easy to read format.

Data Storage and Analysis

Weekly data is recorded and

stored inside the physical coaster. This information can be synchronized with your smart phone via Bluetooth for review and analysis. The Coaster Talk app can store up to 60 days of data, including graphics and details.

Cup Flexibility

We understand that you have your favorite cup or mug and would prefer not to replace it with a smart bottle that has a single outlook design. This is why we created Coaster Talk. It works with an endless variety of cups so you aren't limited to drinking one. Also, it works with all kinds of milk bottles, regardless of the material. The shape can be fat, thing, tall or short.

Color Options

Operates Independently from Smart Phones

The built-in algorithm enables Coaster Talk to record data and generate alerts/reminders without a phone. We chose Bluetooth because of the wide variety of smart phones that use this technology.

Rechargeable Battery

To be compatible with the largest amount of mobile phones, we've selected Bluetooth. Coaster Talk includes a 250 ma rechargeable battery, so there are no extra costs to keep it charged.

We’d like as many people as possible to enjoy the convenience, intelligence and sleek appearance of Coaster Talk. Your contribution will directly fund production and continuous product support.

Risks and challenges

There are 3 main pieces of this project that must be completed to bring Coaster Talk to life: software, hardware and manufacturing.
Our team has extensive experience in designing, planning and building high-quality apps on a variety of mobile platforms. Both our electronic engineer and apps software programmer are able to delivery electronic software and mobile apps by our deadline.
On the hardware side, I have great network of all related manufacturers in China to work with. Taking advantage of the abundant manufacturing resources, we will be able to find the most efficient and high quality production partners with very affordable price. I have extensive experience in the entire beginning-to-end product manufacturing process and have an excellent reputation for delivering products on time in my previous ten years work experience.
