A kettle can be handy to have with you when you may fancy a cup of tea. Simply find an electrical power socket, some water and you are on your way.
The problem here though, is that walking about the high street brandishing a kettle is frowned upon by many.
If located on the side - just near the
water level indicator - was a USB port with control buttons and LCD screen that stored and played your favourite jingles through accompanying earphones - you may not stand out quite so much.
As most kettles fit neatly and securely in your hand, many people will enjoy the comfort and security of mobile tea and tunes.
You may also carry your wallet, lipstick, carkeys etc inside - but take care to remove these items before brewing.

controls will only make Earl Grey and PG Tips whereas the
cheap looking clones will make anything. Except Earl
Grey. Unless you purchase a third-party tea converter on
||I suspect fewer people would get mugged for their iPods
if the iPods contained scalding water.
||I was half expecting an over-engineered kettle that played an MP3 of a whistle when the thermocouple inside and the vapour pressure detector indicated that the contents were boiling, irrespective of altitude.
An obvious bun for an invention that allows CKCD* sufferers like myself to get on with their daily lives, free from the fear of persecution and ridicule.

||Will it whistle the tunes, too?
||Farmerjohn had an idea like that. see link
