The 'Solar Glass' Absorbs the Sun to Keep Your Drink Warm

Harnessing the power of the sun, the 'Solar Glass' absorbs solar energy to keep drinks at your preferred temperature. The glass is coated with a thin heat-absorbing material on the inside to prevent temperature changes. In addition, the outer layer also has an absorbent coating to take in energy from the sun. With both sides of a cup regulating temperature, the 'Solar Glass' keeps your beverage at a perfect drinking level.

The structure of the cup is built with an inner and outer tube. The inner tube contains the coating and is suspended within a glass outer tube. As a result, the Solar Glass's "solar vacuum heat pipe" design keeps heat from being lost to nearby surfaces.
