Coffee is the go to elixir to jumpstart most people’s day.  Me?  I prefer to challenge my brain by performing a somewhat complex activity.  Generally speaking this activity is cooking breakfast, showering, and brushing my teeth. Okay, so it might not be Rubik’s Cube complicated, but it gets the motor skills working and engages my brain a bit more.  Plus, I don’t fall off a caffeine cliff later on.  But not everyone can afford the time to perform all the aforementioned activities, and perhaps they’re not willing to go forgo their morning ritual of consuming a hot beverage.

The Build-On Brick Mug, which I more affectionately refer to as the LEGO Mug, is just the cup you need to wake you up in the morning.  It’s compatible with LEGO, PixelBlocks, Mega Bloks, KRE-O, or K’NEX Bricks.  So in theory any childhood stash of stackable toys should be viable.  That, or your kid’s.

The mug is BPA free, hand wash only, and holds up to 12 oz of liquid.  I particularly like ThinkGeek’s version on wheels, though that looks to be a bit advanced for the average builder.  That all being said, the edge of the LEGO Mug appears to be a bit on the thick side, so perhaps expect to dribble here and there when you sip your next cup of java.

The Build-On Brick Mug is available now for $20.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
