Ember Ceramic Mug in 25 Best Inventions of 2017, TIME Magazine

A first of its kind, the new Ember Ceramic Mug receives top honours as one of the most groundbreaking inventions of the year

Ember Technologies, a company in consumer-facing temperature control technology, announced it received top accolades from one of the nation’s most esteemed publications. The Ember Ceramic Mug is one of TIME’s 25 Best Inventions of 2017. Released on newsstands on Friday, TIME noted the product is “poised to become a desktop staple.”

The Ember Ceramic Mug was selected out of hundreds of editor and expert submissions from around the world. To choose the top 25 best inventions for the annual list, TIME carefully reviewed the year’s most dynamic new products and innovative ideas. According to the publication, the list highlights the best inventions that make lives better, simpler and even a little more fun, revealing exciting new trends from multiple categories such as consumer technology, medical science and food.

“It is an incredible honour to be selected by TIME as one of the year’s best inventions. This recognition is deeply personal to me, as I’ve been a serial inventor since I was a child. I’ve dedicated my career to creating products that enhance people’s lives, and the brand is the culmination of years of research and my unending passion surrounding thermal science. The excitement for our new temperature-control Ceramic Mug has been fantastic, and this recognition by TIME is a wonderful accolade that we’re excited to celebrate,” said Clay Alexander, founder and CEO of Ember.

Made of durable stainless steel with a reinforced ceramic coating, the mug combines minimal, refined design with advanced thermal technology. Embedded with multiple temperature sensors and a microprocessor-controlled dual-band heating system, the mug will maintain coffee or tea at the user’s perfect drinking temperature. Incredibly simple to use, the Ceramic Mug has an intuitive technology, allowing it to “sleep” when not in use and “wake up” as soon as it is picked up, so consumers only need to turn it on once.
