Not content with the traditional whistling teakettle, designers Ben Perman and Murat Multu created the Twettle, a design concept for those who communicates with social media site Twitter. There’s Wi-Fi hardware embedded underneath the teapot’s pleasantly asymmetrical shape, connecting to the Internet and letting you know as soon as the water begins to boil.
Perfect for the office, once the water has boiled the kettle will automatically tweet to let everyone know. Unfortunately it won’t stop the actual problem of who will make the tea. More over, this little teapot is smart enough to compile weekly stats on how many tea parties you’ve had and how much water you’ve boiled. Not sure if this appliance could attract a lot of subscribers to its Twitter feed.
The Twettle isn’t available for sale yet but Perman and Mutulu are aiming for a price tag of around $115, if the ambitious project will attract some sponsor (now they need is an infusion of about $500,000 to get this teakettle out of the design stage and into stores).
