Mobile application for smartphone – smartcup interworking
Client - a big international company, well-known coffee and spice manufacturer.
Within the project framework, it was required to develop a mobile app to synchronize the work of a smartphone and an interactive coffee mug. The client produced the idea of the mug. A big e-ink display is installed on the mug side; it is operated by the temperature of the liquid inside the mug. Photos can be sent to the display and images from other users can be received as well. The mug and the image are operated by a smartphone by means of the mobile app which was required.
The mobile application is powered by three platforms: iOS, Android, and WindowsPhone. The application synchronizes the devices over BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) protocol. It provides for sending photos from the smartphone to the mug display or receiving photos and sending images to other users’ mug displays.
Also, a test app was developed for Android to test the mugs at the place of production. Mobile application for smartphone – smartcup interworking.
The beta-batch of the interactive mugs is already tested by users worldwide. According to the managers of the client company, it is planned to continue the cooperation with further team extension.
