Vessyl is no mug – it's a smart cup that tells you what you're drinking

•, By Colin Jeffrey

However, pour something into it and it becomes extraordinary: not only will it identify what type of drink it has in it, but Vessyl will also tell you its dietary content, such as sugar, protein, calories, fat, caffeine – even identifying the beverage by name – then take all of those results and synchronize them to your smartphone.

Working with a companion smartphone app for iOS and Android, Vessyl transfers data via Bluetooth to automatically record and analyze your daily beverage intake. During the day as you fill and refill Vessyl, the app tracks what you are drinking and when, while keeping a running total. The app can then be made to show specific details, such as the amount of caffeine imbibed for the day, the quantity of sugar ingested, or the amount of calories consumed.
