Ember Technologies was founded in 2010 by inventor and entrepreneur Clayton Alexander. The company based in Westlake Village, California makes drinkware and dishware that can be thermally controlled. The first product is a temperature adjustable travel mug, designed by Ammunition Design Group. The temperature of the liquid within the mug can be controlled either manually by rotating a dial on the bottom of the mug, or with the Ember app that will be available for Android and iOS. The company has since released their second product called the Ember Mug. This mug designed for desk use is also capable of keeping the preferred temperature of the beverage for hours at a time.
More recently Ember Technologies have updated and upgraded both products, calling them the Ember Travel Mug 2 and the Ember Mug 2. Both products have been upgraded to include an auto-sleep feature as well as an improved battery life.
