Ember Mug, la tasse de café connectée à Santé

Par Pierre Dandumont

Aujourd’hui, encore un test d’un produit qui se connecte à l’application Santé, l’Ember Mug. Il s’agit d’une tasse connectée en Bluetooth qui va permettre de garder un café (ou un thé) à la bonne température pendant environ 1 heure. Et qui va mesurer votre consommation de caféine.

Le mug a une contenance de 10 oz (en gros, 300 ml) et semble de bonne qualité. Il ne chauffe pas trop quand il contient un liquide, il semble solide, il se nettoie facilement, rien à dire sur ce point. On voit le côté connecté sur deux choses : la LED placée à la base, qui est réglable, et le cercle sous la tasse. Parce que oui, la tasse se recharge. Ce n’est pas de l’induction comme un téléphone, pour des questions d’efficacités : on a deux broches sur la base et deux cercles sous la tasse. Ce choix permet de mettre la tasse dans n’importe quel sens. Question alimentation, c’est assez costaud : 19 V et 2,1 A (~40 W), on est donc assez loin d’un chargeur de téléphone.

La tasse

Attention, il existe deux générations. La première (le mien) possède une base un peu large et une autonomie un peu faible. Je l’ai eu sur Amazon pour 100 € (grâce aux liens placés ici et sur Twitter). Apple ou le fabricant vende une v2 pour 120 €. Elle possède une batterie un peu plus performante (90 minutes), est résistante à l’eau (IPX7) et la base est un peu moins large. Mais dans l’ensemble, c’est le même produit. Il existe d’ailleurs des versions plus grosses (14 oz, 415 ml), une tasse de voyage (en gros, un truc qui ressemble aux gobelets Starbucks) et une version cuivrée du mug, plus onéreuses (150 € en 10 oz).

La charge

Avant de passer aux usages, il y a pleins de trucs énervants à prendre en compte. Premièrement, la tasse ne chauffe pas réellement, elle garde à une température précise (entre 50 et 62°C). Deuxièmement, l’autonomie est assez limitée : 1 heure à ~55°C avec ma version, 1h30 avec le mug le plus récent. Troisièmement, il faut évidemment éviter le four à micro-ondes et le lave-vaisselle. En gros, il faut nettoyer à la main avec une éponge, et éviter les cuillères. Tout ça mis ensemble, c’est pas mal de contraintes, surtout que le passage au micro-ondes/lave-vaisselle risque d’endommager la tasse (et l’appareil).

Le chargeur, un peu large

L’application

L’application n’est franchement pas géniale. Déjà, elle supporte mal l’iPhone SE : les textes sont coupés dans pas mal d’endroits. Ensuite, il faut un compte (je n’aime pas ça) et le contrat est un peu trop long à mon goût. Enfin, il faut activer le support de Santé dans un sous-menu. En pratique, j’ai mis l’application en anglais, c’est un peu plus lisible. Le fonctionnement est un peu particulier : une fois la tasse remplie, il faut swipper vers le bas pour afficher les boissons (on peut éditer) et choisir ce que vous buvez. L’appli gère assez mal l’écran de l’iPhone SE (encore) et les boutons sont peu accessibles. Il y a quelques choix, mais on peut aussi créer sa boisson : type (café/thé), marque (pour le café : Starbucks, Peet’s Coffee, Costa Coffee, Caribou, Lavazaa ou… rien), le type de café, la température et la taille habituelle des tasses. C’est très américano-centré en pratique, malheureusement. Truc important, pour que Santé récupère le niveau de caféine, il faut bien choisir le type de boisson à chaque fois. Au début, je ne le faisais pas et du coup, je n’ai pas de données à ce moment là.

Quelques infos (batterie, LED, etc.)

Dans l’application, on a un petit graphique qui montre le moment où vous buvez une tasse de café et votre sommeil ou votre rythme cardiaque, si vous avez un appareil qui mesure la fréquence. Dans Santé, on a simplement le nombre de milligrames de caféine ingéré. En gros, il compte 300 mg par tasse. Quand je suis en bouclage ou que je me déplace, je suis à (beaucoup) plus de deux tasses, mais ici je reste vers deux par jour, ce qui est raisonnable. On le voit, aussi, il y a un jour ou il n’a pas mesuré et j’ai donc visiblement oublié de sélectionner le type de café.

L’usage

La partie connectée est franchement pleine de défauts, ce n’est pas pratique, il y a énormément de contraintes. Mais à l’usage, l’idée est plutôt bonne : garder un café ou un thé à la bonne température (bon, je mets un peu plus bas que ce qui est recommandé) est un plaisir. J’ai tendance à parfois oublier mes boissons et donc là, ça reste chaud pendant pas loin d’une heure. Et une notification prévient quand c’est buvable (parfait avec le thé) et quand la batterie baisse. Honnêtement, un simple bouton pour choisir le type de boisson aurait été préférable à l’application, et l’intégration dans Santé est assez minimale. Bien évidemment, il faut recharger, nettoyer à la main, etc., mais ça reste pratique. J’expliquais au-dessus que le but est de garder chaud, mais il est tout de même possible de chauffer le contenu, c’est juste assez lent et ça vide la batterie, ce n’est donc pas très conseillé. Le seul bémol, en réalité, c’est quand on arrive à la fin du café : s’il ne reste qu’un fond de liquide, la température monte pas mal, et on est largement au-delà de celle attendue, visiblement les capteurs n’aiment pas ça.

Une notification


Sur son socle

Est-ce que ça vaut son prix ? Je ne pense pas, surtout sur les version modernes qui valent entre 120 et 150 €. Est-ce que c’est pratique ? Oui, vraiment, surtout si vous oubliez votre café. Mais l’application est franchement perfectible malheureusement.

Cinema AV (AKA Evan Henry)

Par Hayley Cantor

Evan Henry, from Dallas, Texas, is a truly multidisciplinary AV artist, who primarily works visually under the artistic name Cinema AV, but who is also known to write ambient music scores with both analog and digital synthesizers. His work embraces both analog and digital set ups, with his main interest visually representing sound.

What began as a love of photography, cinema and found footage grew into something much greater when in 2015, Evan was introduced to video circuit-bending and once-obsolete video electronics. Using these pieces in a live performance setting was always his goal, and from the get-go, tachyons boxes, vcrs, and video mixers turned into buying used Gieskes 3trinsrgb+1c standalone video synthesizer, building its expanders and just over a year later, the LZX cadet and castle line of DIY eurorack modules.

From there, video art went from beyond a hobby, to a complete way of life. Reliant on live performance, he plays at gigs relentlessly for both local, and touring artists alike. In 2018, he joined Ghostly Intl.’s Steve Hauschildt on a tour through the East Coast and Canada. He became the resident visual artist for Proton Limited in Dallas, Texas in 2019. These motions set the stage for a constantly evolving motion in the live visual dimension. 

Cinema AV’s work extends itself to instant and 35mm film renderings and has appeared in galleries and pop-up’s throughout North Texas. But when not playing live, or coordinating visuals for Dallas Ambient Music Nights, Evan is occasionally writing or building a set of modules for fellow artists.

The result is an infinitely growing body of work, that in the last few years has expanded itself into largely digital dimensions in Resolume Arena and Max/Msp.
