This is one of those designs, I could only wish I made it myself. Miito by Design Academy graduate Nils Chudy is a water cooker that doesn’t use a kettle. Instead it can boil water in all non-metal objects like a glass, mug or teapot. The inductive base heats the rod which then heats the surrounding liquid. Since you’re heating in the cup you will be drinking from, you’re never heating too much water which saves a lot of energy.
Clever integration of technology, aesthetics, sustainability & interaction!
