Build-On Brick Mug combines coffee and Lego

Two of the things that keep many people sane and alert are coffee and Lego. The coffee helps keep you awake while tinkering with Lego is just fun. ThinkGeek has unveiled what may be the coolest coffee mug in the history of coffee. The mug is called the Build-On Brick Mug.

The mug has a suitably blocky design perfect for fans of Lego bricks. It has an alternating arrangement of holes where you can poke various building blocks and the raised knobs where you can click your building blocks onto the cup. The mug is black in color and the building surface is compatible with most building block systems.

That means it will work with Lego, PixelBlocks, MegaBlocks, KRE-O, and K'NEX Bricks. However, the mug isn't officially licensed by any of those manufacturers. The mug is constructed using BPA-free plastic and has a capacity of 12 ounces. The mug isn't dishwasher safe so you have to hand wash.

This mug opens up the possibility of constructing all sorts of interesting coffee conveying contraptions using Lego technica and other building blocks. The coffee cup is available right now for $19.99. The best part of waking up is building your Lego cup.
