This Heat-Activated Mug Reveals Facts About the Universe When You Add Hot Coffee

Solar System Mug

If you love coffee, a warm brew is most likely your morning must-have. Rather than drink from a run-of-the-mill mug, however, why not elevate your daily dose of caffeine with a cup that's truly out of this world?

This planet mug by the Unemployed Philosophers Guild has taken the concept of “cool cup” to new heights. When empty, this black coffee cup features an illustration of the solar system. Once filled with a hot drink, tidbits of galaxy-related trivia start to appear, transforming the ordinary ware into a portable planetarium.

What kind of facts will you find on this eye-opening mug? To keep it vague, you can expect to learn about everything from the magnetic field of ancient Mars to the head-turning tilt of Uranus. Want the stellar specifics? You'll have to pick up your own planet mug from My Modern Met Store, where you'll find a whole new world of creative coffee cups.

Want to take your morning brew to new heights? This planet mug magically transforms into an astronomy lesson when filled with a hot drink.
