A dose of retro with your tea: Game Boy heat-change mug

Tech Tools: Inspired by Nintendo’s Game Boy and the cult of Mario



Not quite technology at its most cutting edge, but certainly something that games fans might like. This heat-changing mug is inspired by Nintendo’s Game Boy and the cult of Mario. It has all the styling of the old-style Game Boy, complete with screens. The “screen” is blank until you add your morning hot drink, and then as if by magic, it turns into an iconic Mario/Daisy scene. On the other side, you have the familiar start screen. Take your pick. Clearly it’s some sort of wizardry we can’t explain.
