This Kettle Will Save Millions Of Pounds In Wasted Water

When you boil a kettle, what's the likelihood that you've overfilled it? Probably quite high.

In fact it's so high that if you took all the wasted energy from a day's worth of overfilled kettles in the UK, you could light all of the UK's streetlights for one night.

Providing a solution to this problem requires something absolutely new, in this case, visually as well as technologically. The Miito is an induction kettle.

Using a long iron rod, the cup is placed onto the induction plate and a rod is then inserted into the cup. The resulting electromagnetic field then heats the rod and in turn boils the water.

It's a gloriously simple idea because it only heats the water that you're going to drink, there's no wastage.

At present, Miito is just a prototype so will require some serious upgrades including an automated shutoff sensor and a stainless steel coating for the heating rod.

The team plan to release the finished product in the last quarter of 2016 with an estimated cost of around 80 although this will depend greatly on the crowdfunding model they plan to employ.

For now though it's a genuinely exciting look at solving one of our laziest faults.
