IoT Teapot & Table with Media Art is composed of the following functions:
The automatic sensitive lid is programmed to detect the water temperature. After about 1 min 30 seconds, the sensor would detect if the water has hit the right temperature, and the LED inside the lid comes on, while floral patterns automatically emerges.
As soon as the flower is lit up on the lid, it communicates with the table via NFC (Near Field Communication). Then, the table displays a scenic floral media art video as a signal that now is the best time to drink the tea.
The media art disappears in 10 seconds, during which the user can pour the tea and enjoy the visual interaction created by the teacup and the table. The interaction presents a powerful visual and sensuous experience while the user is drinking tea.
