Thomas Gostelow has designed the world's first fine china heating mug that will automatically keep your drink at the same temperature for thirty minutes. The mug, which can be charged on a Qi coaster, turns on automatically, will stop heating as soon as your drink is finished and is dishwasher proof.

Thomas, an experienced product designer from Manchester has been working on the design, testing the electronics and building protoypes for the last two years.

“We’re onto version 4 and while we’ve added useful features, we’ve kept it simple and made the mug fully automatic. All you have to do is charge it, the mug does everything else, apart from wash itself," he told the MEN.

Thomas' company, Glowstone, are now looking for funding so they can deliver in time for Christmas. 

“Having pre-orders through Kickstarter means that our backers will benefit from our mugs at a lower price as they pay up front - all we need is enough of them," he added.
