Ember’s a little bit of a bizarre one. The Southern California agency has two distinct – although not wholly unrelated arms. There’s the good mug aspect of the enterprise that launched the startup and the newer chilly chain delivery wing, which leverages its temperature management know-how to maneuver issues like medical provides.
Whereas it appeared as if the mug enterprise may need been a sort of stepping stone to well being care (the place the actual cash is), that aspect of issues continues to be going sturdy. At this time at CES, as an example, Ember is saying the Journey Mug 2+. The brand new addition to the road provides Apple’s Discover My to the equation.
Whereas not precisely the obvious addition on the face of it, journey mugs are definitely the kind of factor that will get left behind fairly simply. Add a pair hundred greenback price ticket, and it turn out to be instantly clear why you’d actually quite not by accident depart the factor behind on a bus.
Due out sooner or later in Q2 2020, the mug has each the required built-in monitoring, in addition to a chime that performs for those who occur to lose it in shut proximity (one other will need to have to correctly use Discover My).
The product has all the identical performance because the common Journey Mug 2, together with temperature management and a show built-in. Despite the extra performance, the product will run the identical as its predecessor — $199 – when it launches later this yr. No phrase on whether or not the usual mug will keep in the marketplace at a diminished value.
