An Internet Connected Beer Mug? It’s about time!
Why make a smart beer mug? Well, because we can! We decided to make a product that is straight forward, simple, fun and very cool! We took something that almost everyone uses and we connected it to the Internet. This enables the ePint to do things that, until now, seemed impossible. We love sports, we love beer and we love technology so, with sports and beer hard to improve on, we came up with the idea of vastly improving the typical boring beer mug. The idea of ePint was born. We have the smartest beer mug in the Universe and we want to share it with you and your friends!
No more fumbling around for a bottle opener because we have gone the extra mile and built a stainless steel bottle opener right into the bottom of each ePint.
Fluid Detection Sensor ePint can tell you when your full and when your empty. ePint also knows when it’s sitting idle and powers down to standby mode.

You have seen where we are going, this is where we came from, thanks for all your support we can't wait to share the ePint with everyone!
Risks and challenges
MANUFACTURING: Designing the custom polycarbonate mold to create the perfect ePint and keep the electronics and sensors dry requires specialized skills to do it properly. Even then, it may take more than one iteration to get it precise. There is frequently a 60 day lead time to create the moulds. To shorten the lead times, while ensuring the highest levels in quality control, we use the best mechanical engineering talent we can find and only work with tooling manufacturers that we have used before and have a proven track record.
FCC/CE certifications: We have a great deal of experience putting a variety of products through FCC, CE, and Bluetooth certifications. This can be a long and tedious process. We do not expect any unforeseen issues that we have not quickly resolved before, but only doing the actual scans will prove this for sure. Labs can be busy and we intend to book our time slot(s) as soon as funding is secured. We will also do pre-scans as soon as possible to be proactive in identifying any possible issue.
FULFILLMENT: Electronics components can have long lead times. The key components are already identified and we intend to start ordering them right away. We have a 2nd source in most areas to reduce the risk of component shortages. This has been routine procedure for Xtreme Tech.
SAFETY: Along with Quality, Health and Safety are top concerns for Xtreme Tech. We always strictly adhere to all FDA guidelines and other safety related rules. We are not anticipating any issues - but we will take all the precautionary time necessary to guarantee our products are 100% safe to use. Only top quality manufacturing facilities with experience making food grade equipment are considered by Xtreme Tech.
All pledges take us one step closer to bringing the ePint to the world. Help us make the ePint a reality by clicking the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of this page and by helping us spread the word by sharing our page.
The team at Xtreme Tech would like thank everyone for their support. We will personally raise our ePints in toast to each and every one of our backers.
