Ember first began selling its temperature control Travel Mug back in 2015, allowing customers to personally control the temperature of their favorite hot beverage from their smartphone, and keep the drink hot for as long as an hour when it wasn’t sitting on a charging pad. Ember also sells the Ceramic Mug, which provides all of the same benefits of the Travel Mug but in a size and shape that’s aimed for use in your home or at your office.
I’ve had the chance to test the Ceramic Mug over the last few weeks, following an announcement that Ember’s mugs now calculate your approximate caffeine intake and sync it to Apple’s Health app, and are now [...]
Eve Systems has been offering HomeKit-connected devices since 2015, and the Eve Room, able to measure temperature, humidity, and air quality, is the newest Eve product available for purchase.
The new Eve Room is actually an upgraded version of an original Eve Room that was one of Eve’s first product releases back in 2015, but the new version has been overhauled with a redesigned enclosure that’s both sleeker and more informative.

The Bento Stack, a new project being funded on Indiegogo, takes the concept of a Bento lunch box and applies it to iPhone and iPad accessories.
Available in three colors (silver, space gray, and rose gold) for $38, the Bento Stack is a container that offers up several sections that can hold a variety of accessories like cables, Apple Watch bands, an Apple Pencil, and more. I was able to go hands-on with the Bento Stack, and I thought it was a nifty organizational tool, if a bit bulky.
I have the Bento Stack in gray, and it seems to match well with Apple’s space gray devices. It’s covered in a soft, rubbery material that’s nice to touch, and [...]
