Murder Most Foul
As a murder-mystery lover, this cup would ruin many a good plot line.

Re: Purity
>I'd be very interested to see if a device like this could break down every element in a drink and then give us an idea of how pure it is or if there's any adulterants.

My guess is that the company's reluctance to provide details about its technology indicates that the capabilities of its chemical analysis chip is fairly limited. I don't know how chemical compounds are assesses by electronics but I'd be surprised if a single chipset could evaluate the fully range of possibilities. Rather I suspect certain chips give you specific compounds (like sugars) and do nothing to look for, say, toxins, odd chemicals, or bacteria.

How drunk do you have to be ...
... to need a computerized cup to tell you you're drinking beer?

>I'd like the Vessyl to tell me the appellation of the pinot noir I'm drinking and the winery at which it was made.

If only there were some paper labelling system that could convey all that data in a commonly understood language.

I'd like the Vessyl to tell me the appellation of the pinot noir I'm drinking and the winery at which it was made. Adding its alcohol content might be helpful, but telling me the amount I've drunk would be downright intrusive.
