SipSup, the uniquely designed social glassware, launched a Kickstarter campaign today. The 42- day Kickstarter campaign has a funding goal of $30,000 that will be used to begin mass production and app development.
Using a specialized NFC chip (for Android phones) and Visual ID (for iOS phones) to enable communication between a smartphone and the SipSup glass, users can drop and view photos and videos that commemorate idyllic life moments. Our ever-present smartphones have changed photography. They are always with us and we can now capture every single moment of our lives. What smartphones also changed is how we look at our photos.
“It’s funny how I carry all these photos in my pocket and I almost never look at them” Miha, SipSup co-founder.
“Dropping” captured moments easily into a SipSup drinking glass inspired the team to create a base that resembles a ripple effect, like a drop falling into water. After many prototypes and testing, the glassware was created with a tall, curved shape, designed to fit naturally in the drinker’s hand. SipSup can be used for coffee, smoothies, a cold mojito, or the iciest craft beer. SipSup glasses are uniquely designed in collaboration- tion with local Slovenian glassworks, Steklarna Hrastnik.
All glassware from the company has a Vitrux certificate, which guarantees that products from can be washed up to 3,000 times in a dishwasher without retaining a single scratch. The glass is free of heavy metals and yet achieves brilliance of the crystal. Backers for the Kickstarter campaign could receive a multitude of exclusive gifts, including original, custom prototypes that had the SipSup chip in the bottom of the glass instead of the side.
The final version of the glass contains the SipSup chip on the side, displaying the SipSup logo, which increases visibility and ease of use when uploading photos and videos. For more information on SipSup, or the Kickstarter campaign, visit SipSup.me
The SipSup app is free and will be available for Android and iOS devices, however, you can access the app only with a SipSup drinking glass.
Using a specialized NFC chip (for Android), or visual ID (for iOS) within the SipSup logo on the drinking glass, users can drop photos to be recalled in the future via SipSup app. Using the SipSup app, you can choose favorite photos and videos that you’d like to keep personal(private folder), or share (public folder) it with anyone who taps your SipSup glass.
Post-it feature is created for so your friends, family or other visiting guests can interact with you. They can leave you private messages on the photo only you will be able to see.
