cuppa.jpg
a tea or coffee cup printed with a color matching guide to help people add just the right amount of cream by matching the color of the liquid mixture. "MyCuppa" is conceptually similar to the "128 Pantone Mugs" project of coffee-colored, Pantone-color matching coffee cups.

Clearly the second picture is not real ... the color (sorry, "colour") strips on the inside of the cup are solid color, whereas in the first picture there are shadows, artifacts, un-straight lines. Also, the colors in the second photo don't match the colors in the first.

Great design idea, I'd like to see more things like this. Just had to pick nits about the imagery.

What a great idea. This could be a wonderful marketing tool for Pantone Color Systems. Why not add a temperature gauge as well?

The lower image does look doctored (and its design flavor is interestingly '70s), but that doesn't matter since it's merely the concept that counts.

Here's one that shows the make up of some coffee orders:

This is a little too much control for my mourning cup, but clever none the less.

Okay, I think this is brilliant. I was tempted to purchase another style of mug which had the one square of colour across the front of the mug. This is far, far better.

Not out until mid-September :-(

All you people with "ooh must be fake" make me sick. Accept it for what it is. Have you never heard of jpeg artifacts? Tools.

The link to where you can buy one is actually in the article and they even do coffee now :)

I just thought this would be the perfect gift. No more guessing ;-)
