Perpetually "steaming" coffee cup

For [mahatma]'s "I'm still here" ruse.

The "steaming" coffee cup for [mahatma]'s desk could be accomplished with a small, battery-powered vaporiser. The gubbins and batteries are in the bottom, and the vapor is vented just under the rim. The reservior is the cold coffee itself, not only producing "steam" but also that hot coffee aroma.

       This reminds me of the new electronic cigarettes which produce "smoke" for that realistic feel.

       That's exactly what made me think of it, actually. My best friend has one, and we were laughing about it the other day.

       A smoking bum would be worth developing.

       // bum //   

       Ambiguous terminology. Please specify: drifter or derriere?

       I have bummed this idea.

       Inject ultrasonic waves into coffee.

       Yes, they are. Did you have a question about that, or were you just emphasizing my brilliance?

       //my brilliance// You mean the source of solar luminance?
pocmloc, Jul 04 2011

       I like this. +

       // my brilliance // no, I meant the work of genius it was to figure out that the worky bits go in the bottom and the coffee goes on top.

       Nothing new here, I just finally got around to linking the post that calved this spin-off.
