Developed in Zhang’s senior studio under the guidance of professors Anthony Guido and Jennifer Goettner, E-WAT uses sensor technology to monitor a person’s hydration and water consumption.

“If you’re like me and two-thirds of people who don’t drink enough water, then you’ll appreciate the E-WAT too,” notes Yanko. “A touch sensor built directly into the skin of the thermos detects the user’s hydration and alerts them when they need to drink. Similar to a fitness band, users can set and achieve goals and monitor their progress over time. Genius!"
