If your coffee is too hot, and you’re (like us) not a fan of mugs (makes us look a little too Lumbergh for our tastes), then you might want to look at this nifty ceramic cup from Stephen Reed. It’s a regular cup with raised ridges running along the longitude, so your fingers are actually insulated from the scalding liquid via air. Clever.
Reed says his inspiration was computer heat sinks, which makes sense, since they use the same principle to cool the chip in your computer. And if it can allow our first-gen dual-G5 to run Google Earth without starting fires, we like it for our morning coffee, too.
