Travel Mug and Tea Kettle In One

A couple designers figured they'd take two consumer favorites - coffee mugs and kettles - and combine them. Behold, the Kug, a mug that will boil your tea like a kettle.
The design was inspired by arthritis sufferers who find it difficult lifting a kettle heavy with water, but it also could potentially serve a greener purpose by cutting down on the number of things a person owns.
On the flip side, unless it's build extraordinarily durable, it could mean just another piece of e-waste. Do you think the design is a hit or a miss?
