Creators of TheM Thermal Dining Place Mats Launch IndieGoGo Campaign

Geeta Bedi

The creators of TheM Thermal Dining Place Mats have launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for the production and distribution of this product.

TheM Thermal Dining Place Mats keep food at the ideal temperature for up to one hour, allowing cooks to serve food at the proper temperature and keep it warm during the meal.  Now, the creators of this innovative product have launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for the production and distribution of these place mats.

TheM keeps food at 150 degrees Fahrenheit or more for up to one hour through exchange of heat from the mat to the plate.  The hot dish transfers heat to TheM, which then stores the heat and releases it back to the dish over time.  This allows food to be kept warm for up to one hour, making it easy to serve hot meals at the right temperature.

The octagon 8-inch mat weighs less than two pounds and has a width of less than one-quarter of an inch, making it small and convenient to use.  Kid-friendly, scratch-resistant and dishwasher safe, the mat utilizes Outlast® Phase Change Technology to transfer heat from the surface to the serving dish and back continually, keeping dishes at the perfect temperature for serving.  The mat remains cool to the touch and can be easily washed and reused over and over.  Available in white, the mat integrates into almost any décor and can fit inside larger dishes to keep casseroles, meats and other foods warm on the table for up to one hour.

As seen at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/thermal-dining-place-mats-called-them , the IndieGoGo campaign offers donors a variety of pledge levels from $25 to $500 and perks ranging from single TheM units to restaurant or caterer sets of 25.  For more information on the individual perks associated with each pledge level, see the IndieGoGo page.

About TheM:   

TheM is a thermal place mat that integrates scientifically advanced technology with a beautiful design.  The place mats keep food at the proper temperature for up to one hour.

You’ve gone tech forward – why hasn’t your coffee mug?

Geeta Bedi

Don’t you just hate having to drink hot beverages that have gone lukewarm/cold? Let’s face it: the best part of the hot beverage is always the first few sips and it’s basically impossible to enjoy a full hot mug of tea or coffee unless you drink it all up quickly – but where’s the fun in that? Sure, you can try heating plates or electric wired mugs, but they limit you to a space and you can’t enjoy a hot beverage on the go…and we all know how environmental UNfriendly disposable cups are, so what’s the solution to this mundane yet annoying situation? The answer: The Nano Heated Wireless Mug.

The Nano Heated Wireless Mug is the solution for all coffee, tea, and other hot beverages’ lovers. It keeps your beverage hot at the ideal drinkable temperature for 45 minutes, wirelessly. This means you can take it around AND it’s environmental friendly.

Created by Design HMI, LLC and Green Lama, LLC, chargeable nano heat technology is the running fuel behind this innovative product. With a long lasting charge, you can enjoy up to 8 cups of your beverage before needing to recharge. The Nano Heated Wireless Mug solves all the problems keeping your drink hot without being tied to a cord or a particular place. It can go wherever you go, charge easily with a USB cable anywhere.

Efficient. Green. Forward. Convenient. And hot – just how you like it.

This Mug is your answer to saying goodbye to heating plates and wired heating mugs that restrict your mobility, disposable cups that can’t keep your beverage hot and harm the environment and save you the trouble of reheating and having to endure the bland taste that occurs after reheating. Enjoy in your office, home, or anywhere else – a hot drink you truly enjoy, without having to chug it down quickly.

Features

The Nano Heated Wireless Mug uses patented nano heat technology and has a capacity of 14 – 16 oz. The mug features a minimalist design with an insulated lid and stainless steel interior, with an On/Off button on the exterior, with a blue lighted ring as indicator, which turns flashing red to indicate low battery (25% and less).

The cup is wireless, only requiring electric charge before use through the included USB charger. The charges lasts for 7+ refills and maintains one serving hot or 45 minutes. Drink is kept hot at the drinkable temperature of 145F (63o C) to 155F (68o C). Mug turns off automatically at 30 minutes to preserve power.

Everything is thought through by the innovators behind the Mug. You simply enjoy your hot drink.

Our Journey

As an engineering consultant over the last 6+ years I have been working with innovators on a global basis helping integrate innovations and technologies into consumer products. During this period, working from home, I would regularly have cups of coffee. As I was working the coffee would get cold after a few sips. I would have to throw the coffee away and leave work to get another cup. Even though I brewed 8-10 cups,most went to waste.

I have tried all different types of mugs, cups and warming plates but they were very inefficient, clumsy and a waste of money. So in late 2013 I started working on a wireless heated coffee mug with a rechargeable battery. After coming up with the concept, I shared it with various coffee/tea drinkers and engineers. They all loved it! 

In Jan 2014 I filed my first provisional patent. In June, I heard of AME and their NANO heater. AME and I collaborated together to design, prototype and validate the wireless coffee mug and heat technology.

During the design process we made multiple revisions and went through two prototype cycles. The biggest challenges were packaging of the rechargeable power cells and design circuitry to control the heating and charging, and integrating the dynamic heating NANO heater technology. Once we had all of the kinks worked out in late 2014 we filed another provisional patent followed by a non-provisional patent for the design and technology integration.    

After this journey we are very proud to bring you a production ready NANO heated mug that will change the way we have been drinking our hot beverages.

Recommended that one have 3-5 cups a day (caffeinated or decaffeinate).  And it is recommended to drink it hot. But issue again... tea gets cold in most cups or mugs in under 7-10mins. Since I have been using the Nano heated mug i sip on my tea as I work and have it stay at the perfect drinkable temperature for 45mins.

What is the best drinkable temp for my hot beverages and how do I keep them there?

Geeta Bedi

So when we get our coffee or tea it is usually poured at a temperature of 185F-190F degrees .  Too hot to drink.  The ideal temperature for drinking is 155F degrees!  There is a steam effect that happens as you pour the beverage.  Instantly some of the heat leaves the beverage, as steam is released while pouring.  After which the temp keeps dropping and doesn't stop at the optimal 155F degrees.  SO UNFORTUNATE!!!

Well don't deal with that anymore.  The Nano Heated mug keeps your beverage at the perfect drinkable temperature for 45 minutes after it is poured.  This heated mug is wireless so extremely travel friendly.  If you are a 6-8 cup per day coffee/tea drinker like me you are in luck as I charge my cup at night and have the charge last all day for 6-8 cups.  Also, I never have to worry about turning it off as it automatically turns off after 30 minutes to save that charge all day.

We are bring this innovative and cutting edge mug to you.  Come support us on Kickstarter week of March 30th.

Nano heated mug making your daily routine more convenient, simple and green! 

Let's not drink coffee/tea gone cold anymore

Geeta Bedi

Tired of filling your cup or mug with a hot beverage for it to only get cold or nuke warm in under 10 minutes?  Being a huge coffee and tea drinker this has been such a point on contention for me.  Having to get up and get new cup, getting interrupted while working or having to walk back and forth from my desk to the coffee room... on and on.  I have bought all sorts of heating plates, mugs, wired mugs with no avail.  Either they don't heat properly, break, or are not portable.

That is why when I heard of this new heat technology that is integrated into a mug I was ecstatic.  Not only does the Nano heated mug keep my coffee at the perfect drinkable temperature for 45 minutes, it is wireless and keeps it charge for 6-8 cups of coffee (so no need to re-charge).  It also automatically turns off after 30 minutes so no charge is wasted.   

Don't take my word for it.  Try it yourself and it will literally change the way you have been drinking your hot beverages.
