Predict when your drink will be a safe temperature, and keep it there longer.
Most coffee and tea is served around 170 degrees Fahrenheit.
Anything above 150 degrees will burn your mouth in less than two seconds.
Not only is this painful, but it increases your risk for oral cancer.
The optimal temperature is 130 degrees to drink; cool enough to avoid burning, but hot enough to be satisfying.
Danielle is looking for a way to drink her coffee in the morning without burning her mouth.
The problem is she hates coffee when it's cold. It can be hard to strike the right balance.
Prophecy out of the box, by default will alert the user when the drink is one minute away from 135 degrees Fahrenheit.
The device vibrates to communicate this, but can also be set up to notify through a mobile app.
The Prophecy mobile app allows for customization of this ideal drinking temperature, as well as a countdown and multi-user support.
Prophecy also helps maintain the temperature of a beverage.
This is achieved through the same means that a large bottle of cold water warms up more slowly versus a small one, or that a full fridge is more efficient on energy.
Prophecy initially absorbs heat from the beverage and retains that heat. It uses a thin layer of unconductive ceramic along with an internal volume of thermally conductive gel. The thin unconductive ceramic is food safe, but also prevents heat from escaping too quickly. The internal gel has plenty of time to heat up. As the drink loses temperature faster to it's surroundings than Prophecy's gel held within the ceramic, Prophecy can help add a consistent and longer lasting hot or cold "ice cube" to the beverage.
