Exemplifying the quickening movement towards "the internet of things", this concept reusable coffee cup contains a solar powered clock, Bluetooth integration with your mobile phone and respective real-time Twitter feed, as well as automatic Foursquare check-in.

Exemplifying the quickening movement towards “the internet of things“, DoGood Headquarters has developed an ambitious concept for a reusable coffee cup that can be folded back into your pocket or purse (foldable for storage), is BPA free – and possesses a solar powered clock, Bluetooth integration with your mobile phone and respective real-time Twitter feed.  Not to mention automatic Foursquare check-in.

While the concept is just that at this point in time, it's also an example of how “the internet of things” will continue to bridge the digital and analog worlds.  A portable, connected coffee cup could theoretically allow you to automatically check in on Foursquare as you change locations throughout the day – directly from your coffee cup.  This is also one of several examples of rich creative ideas looking for a business or institution in need of a brilliant idea to take to market.  The concept is available on jovoto, a marketplace for creative ideas.
