You Are What You…drink?

I love it when I find products that combine great design, function and a cool dose of science – especially when it involves food.

Meet the Vyssel.  It’s a smart cup.  A beautiful vessel that revolutionizes the drinking cup.  Connected to an app downloaded to your smart phone, this cup is created with a sensor that can examine and recognize anything poured into the polymer cup at a molecular level. It is so precise it can tell the difference between Coke and Pepsi!  Vessyl accurately tallies up the total grams of sugar, fat, protein, sodium, and caffeine with each serving poured into it.  Even how dehydrated you are!
