Smart lid on the way for coffee drinkers

A specially designed lid can solve the problem of burning your tongue when you drink hot coffee. A group of engineering students is behind the invention and they have just started production of the first prototype.

Aarhus University is opening its energy laboratory in Katrinebjerg on Friday 2 December. (Photo: Lars Kruse)
The laboratory can be used by researchers, students and companies. The aim is to gain experimental experience with an energy system based on full integration of sustainable energy sources such as the sun, wind and biogas. (Photo: Lars Kruse)
The RESCUE Lab is self-sufficient with energy from the sun, wind and biogas, and also has the capacity to store energy. This image is taken on the roof, which is equipped with solar cells. (Photo: Lars Kruse)
