Finished! Next Gen To-Go Tumbler prototype finished!!!!!

Hi all,
It’s been too long for sure. But i do have a cool surprise for you all. The much anticipated Tumbler i have been developing is done! So now you will be able to steep on the go without having to remove the infuser from the tumbler or over-steep, even while drinking.

Originally it was made of high grade plastic but now the tumbler is made of shock and impact resistant glass with a silicone sleeve. A stainless steel mesh infuser (prototype it is plastic and mesh for ease of redesign, live version will be stamped stainless steel mesh) with high grade plastic lid and an air tight shock absorbing storage compartment on the bottom. Currently holds 16oz of water.

That said i made a quick video to show it in action, and here are some pictures as well. I’ll be starting on the kickstarter video next week. As i will need a lot more help to get this into production. Tooling is very expensive :( and minimum orders are very high. So anything you all can do to spread the word will be so much appreciated.
Colors on the silicon sleeve can and may change.
