I’m notorious for not drinking half of my tea simply because it’s become too cold, but with the Pengtao Yu MugLight, I can finally break this wasteful cycle. A two-in-one concept, it utilizes the heat from the lamp to warm a cooling hot drink.

Working late one chilly night, product designer Pengtao Yu came up with this ingenious solution. By creating a heat insulating lamp shade designed specifically to embrace the shape of a cup, the Pengtao Yu MugLight is perfect for a late night study group, the workplace or even home. You can even control the temperature and brightness of the lamp.

I’m not sure when the Pengtao Yu MugLight will be available, but as soon as it is, I know I’ll be the first one in line to get it.
