London-based freelance designer Mark McKeague has created a micro weather system inside a teacup. The work, aptly entitled 'Storm in a Teacup,' mimics weather conditions outside by creating rainy, windy or sunshine-based radiations from within the cup.

The clever creation features a spinning teaspoon with mini-propellers attached that will propel itself around your teacup as it squeals with windy conditions. Having some rays of sunshine radiating out of your teacup would certainly make your morning breakfast a far more pleasant experience. Just be careful not to get burned by this feisty teacup, it can even produce clouds, rain and lightening!

If you're looking to add a little kick to your teatime experience, then these storm-infused cups are just for you. Stats for Storm Brewing Teacups Trending: Older & Buzzing
