  1. I’ve seen this advertised. There’s an aerial in the stem of the cup that connects to your phone via low energy Bluetooth to a smartphone app. I’m not entirely sure I like the idea of that, although I guess it could be useful to keep track of flow, if (like me) you forget to keep track the old fashioned way.

  2. Interesting idea, but the question to me is… if that data is transmitted to my phone, who can read it? Do I want Google to know about my flow?

    Also it looks very much like the stem cannot be cut/removed. So it’s probably not a good cup for low cervix people like me.
