The ideal intake of water per day recommended by World Health Organization is 11 to 17 cups of water, counted by common paper cups. However, the average that people drink per day is only about 4 cups! It means that most people only drink one third of the essential amount of water that their body need.
This is why we came up with a new idea, TUMBLO. Tumblo is a smart tumbler that is based on IoT technologies, and focuses on health care. With Tumblo, we will help users drink water in a much more fashionable, easier, smarter, and better manner. Tumblo will have its own mobile application that can analyze users’ real-time water intake status, let them share how much they have drunk water or what their pattern is with family, friends, or lover.
This plain looking, small tumbler can do almost everything that will help users drink water in an adequate pattern. The leds embedded in this device play an especially important role. These lights will show users various status of water and alarms by blinking or changing colors in red, green, and blue.
