Tech savvy tea lovers (is there such a thing?) will be happy to know that an iPhone-connected tea kettle is coming soon to kitchen counters. Called the iKettle, of course, the Wi-Fi kettle allows users to turn the kettle on remotely from their iPhone. It’s even got an alarm function so when you wake up in the morning the iKettle companion app will ask you if you’d like to run the kettle, which can be done so from the comfort of your bed so when you walk into that cold kitchen your hot cup of tea is ready and waiting.

The iKettle also allows you to set the temperature of the water–ranging from 65 to 100 degrees–so each tea can be heated to its ideal temperature.

The iKettle is available for preorder now from Firebox, with a 1-2 month ship time. It costs US$99.99 and includes free shipping.
