The Game Over Mug is a ceramic mug by Craziest Gadgets that is shaped like a PlayStation controller. Once the beverage inside has been fully consumed, the words “game over” appear at the bottom of the mug–a helpful reminder to anyone pulling an all-nighter that it’s time for a refill.
The mug is currently scheduled to be available for purchase in February 2015.
