Stephen Colbert's Favorite "Smart" Cup Gets Funded. All Bets Are Off.

The makers of Vessyl, the intelligent drinking cup that analyzes what you’re drinking and sends that data to a mobile app, have raised $3 million in funding from Felicis Ventures and Horizons Ventures. Mark One, co-founded by Justin Lee and industrial designer Yves Behar, has said it plans to use the funds to hire more people and support the production of the $199 Vessyl cup, which is due out early next year. The company also said it had passed $1 million in pre-sales. No word yet on whether Stephen Colbert has raised money for his smart Toylyt.
