Cuppa Clock

A thermoelectrically powered e-paper clock on a coffee mug.

During the workday the display is kept updated, powered by a small storage-capacitor charged by a thermo-electric cell. After a few hours of being heat or motion-less, the e-paper pixels revert to a static display until the clock is heated or picked up. The timekeeping portion requires almost no energy at all and can easily keep running for a week or two unassisted.

       good, don't understand it but it sounds real good.

       an uninformed pastry tastes just the same as the uppity kind gone to college and all, but... "cuppa" is a slang term for "cup of coffee". (post nudged in the general direction of comprehensibility)

       I'd prefer a clockwork (pendulum aided) method of keeping my cuppa warm.

       //alarm... nears minimum drinking temperature// I thought of that too, but my habit consists of a sip a couple times a minute, so I'm usually aware when it's near the critical point and has to be nuked/refilled.

       [FT], the term "cuppa" refers exclusively and specifically to a cup of tea, not coffee.

       "beverage of choice", besides, a cup-of-tea brings to mind china not pottery.
