Enhanced Jug Sends Mobile Alerts When You’re Out of Milk
Toronto-based Teehan+Lax Labs — a digital media company research unit that explores creative uses of technology — has developed an Androidmobile app that answers the question — “Got Milk?”
Researchers developed a specialized milk jug and mobile app called “Do We Have Milk” that pushes notifications to your phone when you’re running low.
A weight sensor is attached to the bottom of the jug. When there’s only enough milk for a bowl of cereal, coffee or no milk at all, the app shows you where the closest sources of dairy are located. Watch the video above for a demo.
