Meet the incredible ‘smart cup’ that will give you nutritional info about what you’re drinking

Mark One Vessyl Smart Cup

One big driver for wearable computers is that they’ll supposedly give us improved health and fitness data, but what about computers that you can eat and drink from? Mark One has just taken the wraps off its Vessyl, a new 13-ounce “smart cup” that will not only be able to detect and breakdown what you’re pouting into your cup but also give you nutritional information on it such as how many calories it has as well as how much sugar, fat and caffeine it contains. You can view data on your drunks either on the side of the cup itself or through the official Vessyl iOS app.

From a design perspective, Vessyl features both a non-stick interior and a spill-proof lid, which means that using the cup sounds like it will be virtually mess-free. The cup also promises between 5 to 7 days of battery life with a full charge time of 60 minutes. You can preorder the cup for a limited time right now for $99 and it’s expected to ship in the spring of 2015.

A video showing off Vessyl follows below.
