Will the German Steve Jobs please stand up?
Meet Nils Chudy and Jasmina Grase. While still in design school, they came up with the idea for the Miito. They teamed up with engineers, made the prototypes, and are now ready to replace the traditional kettles with the Miito worldwide.
With Miito you no longer will heat water you are not actual using. Simply fill a cup with water (coffee, soup, vodka, any liquid really), and put the rod in. After 60 seconds the liquid will start to boil; done!
“One day of extra energy use [from overfilling electric kettles] is enough to light all the streetlights in England for a night.” Leyla Acaroglu a.k.a. the inspiration for Miito.
Becoming the Steve Jobs of Germany does not happen overnight. Your product needs beauty, functionality and simplicity. One touch technology? check! Slim simple yet glossy design in black and white? Check!
The Miito immediately reminded me off an emersion heater I used years ago. I, amongst many others, am pretty amazed by how they made a heater that is a. much better looking, b. more flexible c. wireless and overall just the 2015 edition of an emersion heater. The crappy emersion heater I once used has long been collecting dust in a box somewhere, which is something I can’t imagine ever happening to the Miito. Pretty things are always a good idea!
Having received 6 design awards already, it is no surprise that they have far outstretched their funding goal on good old kickstarter, you can still join in on the boiling fun though!
