Tea Bag Art that Changes When Making a Cuppa

A Malaysian tea company, BOH, collaborated with M&C Saatchi to come up with a novel way to promote their range of chamomile tea.

They decided to use edible ink to print “aggressive” images onto the tea bags like erupting volcanoes, an angry bear, a dragon just to name a few. When the tea bag is dipped in hot water the images seem to melt away into more “calming” ones such as a mountain, a smiling bear and a dove.

iKettle, A Wi-Fi Kettle That Lets You Remotely Boil Water

The iKettle is the “world’s first” Wi-Fi kettle that allows you to remotely boil water via your smartphone. It has a one-touch setup for easy use, even when just waking up. The iKettle is available to purchase at Firebox.

The wake mode gently rouses you from your deep slumber: Good Morning! Would you like me to pop the kettle on? Yes / No. Is there any better wake-up call? Squint open half an eye, hit ‘Yes’ then drift back off to sleep, safe in the knowledge that in the kitchen your iKettle is boiling, ready to deliver your morning rocket fuel. Once boiled it’ll ask if you’re ready or if you’d prefer to keep it warm for a while. Who needs a butler!?
