So – brainstorming on how to make a “responsive mug”, defined as: A mug for CSS geeks that changes, much like a website that changes for large & small devices.
If you’re wondering what this is… & to suggest hashtags… see https://brentonline.ca/2016/11/19/2-week-curiosity-quest/
Changing size: How would this be possible?
What material can expand/shrink & still be impermeable by liquid? (balloon?)
Internal waterproof skin that is strong, water resistant, expands/contracts like a balloon, but washable.
Maybe just change shape, not size – or just change outside appearance? (a slide over?). Look into 3D pop-up books for possible solutions?
Maybe an outside cylinder that rotates around? Maybe perforated so part of what you see is outside cylinder, part is inside cylinder – allowing the image to stay in place during rotation, but change.
What are those images that change depending on the angle they are looked at called?
That’s it for today – 1/2hr is up…
See you tomorrow! Next step: Google searches to see the “lay of the land”.
Other next steps:
- Put together design spec of some sort, to see what people would come up with for a “Responsive Website” (e.g. Menu turns into sandwich menu) – ask for some humour or inside CSS/web joke.
- Contact manufacturers/engineers through Alibaba & ask about an actual transforming mug. Probably need some sort of rough visual first, but maybe not!
Of course, if you have ANY ideas/knowledge/contacts whatever that could help…. 🙂
