Our ancestors would gaze up at the stars with wonder and curiosity. With each new generation pushing our limits further and putting together the pieces of the puzzle of our night sky. Solving and interpreting this spellbinding star puzzle has been a constant pursuit of many of us here on this planet. And as astronomers, we feel driven to create new opportunities to understand and experience space and our own beautifully complex world.
An equally deep and DNA encoded constant pursuit among humankind is to be as caffeinated, energized and desire to be as excited as possible.
On the 3rd of May 2015, after millions of years of evolution, a miraculous event occurred that finally merged these two kinds of human pursuits. Astronomers and those who needed to be constantly caffeinated, from that moment forward were forever intertwined in the history of humanity together. ISSpresso, the first espresso coffee machine designed for use in space. Starting with a public-private partnership with the Italian Space Agency (ASI), Argotec and Lavazza together ushered in a new era of luxury coffee experiences.
Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti was the first person to take a sip of espresso in space and then gaze back at earth and enjoy making a moment in history.
The amount of design and effort that goes into making simple daily morning routines an experience that elevates your day is an infectious noble pursuit.
At AstoReality when we were creating the AR Space mug's look and feel is unique because it was designed with an idea and a vision of the future. Referencing design of spaceships and satellites, the space mug was crafted to strike a balance between functionality and beautiful craftsmanship.
But to honor the history and to elevate your daily routine, we created the Samantha Cristoforetti AR experience and had gathered vasts amount of satellite images that gives you a taste of what looking back in the world from space would be like.
Every astronomy enthusiast, or someone who is living the Astronomer life, is almost naturally eager to experience the bird's eye view of the earth. Perhaps it is the interest and curiosity into the unknown or it is the recognition of the grand splendor of creation/reality itself? Some questions may never be found out with facts, but the answer that I will share with you is that taking extra time understanding our planet is a great way of understanding similarities and the effects of life itself have on the environment of a planet.
This new coffee cup that gives you a birds-eye view of earth from space is a unique product, as well as a unique experience. Imaging taking a sip of coffee to start your morning as well as taking a look at our blue planet from an astronaut view. So when you are thinking about how you want to enjoy a cup of coffee in the future look no further than supporting the AR Space Mug.
Understanding our world from a different perspective is an important part of living. But living is not just about being good and seeing what the universe has to offer but rather sharing an experience together. By giving a unique astronomy gift of either the space mug or a lunar model.
