Tell us about vessel, what is it designed to do?

Why it automatically knows what is inside, and how much you are consuming.

What would be an example of something like this?

You poor coffee?

What we really want to do in our lives is to aggregate and add up all the things that we consume so we can make healthier choices in real time.

Whether that is coffee.

What we do is we show you how much caffeine is currently inside the vessel.

How much caffeine that you have consumed throughout the entire day so that if it is myself, i always want to optimize how much caffeine i am consuming.

That information is going to go into your mobile app as well.

And give you even more information.

And tell you not just the one thing that you really care about, but the wide variety of things.

Calories, sugar, caffeine.

How much does it cost?

We have a pre-order campaign right now.

The price is $99. that is going to be going on for two months.

Then you are going to raise a certain amount?

You are looking to raise $50,000 to turn them into a real product?
