Don't like Starbucks's holiday cups this year? Well, for the price of approximately 27 coffees at the chain, you can opt for a decidedly more high tech mug that will keep your joe hot for hours.

Called Ember, the $80 ceramic mug connects with your phone via Bluetooth and keeps your drink at your preferred temperature. So even if you have to venture out in sub-zero temperatures or you somehow forget about your drink, your caffeinated fix will be as good as when it was first poured.

You can pick up the mug from more than 4,600 Starbucks across the U.S. from this Thursday, as well as Ember's site below.
