We all want that perfect cup of tea or coffee but alas very rarely are able to truly enjoy one or three (yes, we know you’re out there). However all that might change thanks to a new kettle soon to be beamed to us from the future. The aptly named Appkettle is an electric hot beverage kettle that one can control from their mobile devices (Android and iOS, with others planned).

It was found that he tore a tendon in his thumb after playing ‘Candy Crush Saga’ on his smartphone all day for six to eight weeks.
