The Milkmaid - Monitor Your Milk

Array

Gear  |  Projects
The Milkmaid was chosen as the winner of The Quirky + GE Project. This quart size milk jug is a glass container that plugs into a smart base that stays in your fridge. Features:
• pH sensors to detect how long the milk has left until it spoils — or if it already has.
• A smart base with a weight sensor that tells how many cups are left.
• A temperature sensor that alerts you when milk has been left out of the fridge for too long.
• A free iPhone app that lets you access this data remotely so you'll know when to pick up more at the store.
It's a cool idea still in development at Quirky.com.

The Floating mug by Kickstarter user Tigere Chiriga, cool design.
"It's my understanding that during the glazing process, maintaining the mug in a hanging position in extreme temperatures complicates the traditional process of making a porcelain mug. For this project to be successful, I will need a minimum order of 500 units. My goal is to have these shipped right before Christmas. "
