The 2016 Lab Mug

mug2016Design by Carlos Carmona Fontaine.

This mug was created by Carlos back in 2013. Carlos used the jet colormap of Matlab at the time but since Matlab adopted the parula as the new default colormap so did Carlos.

I’m giving away too much. Check out the mug and see if you can figure out the code. If not, here’s the answer:

The 2015 Lab Mug

This year we celebrate Will’s graduation (Jan 27) and our new assistant, Amy Webber, who joined the team last year.

2014 Lab Mug

In 2014 we opted for the action movie theme.

The 2014 official X-Lab mug (sold out) comes in two sizes: Expressino (left) and Instant (right).
The design features a giant-sized hyperswarmer fighting it out with a macrophage-assisted and equally gigantic cancer cell over New York City. Confused Apache helicopters and fighter planes circle the sky, powerless to stop the mayhem.
Enjoy the coffee. If you can get your hands around one of these beauties.

Designed by Joao (2014).

X-lab Monsters

Drop the pipette and hand over that eppendorf. We're taking over.

“Drop the pipette. We’re taking over.” X-Lab monsters mean business.

Unique edition collectible figurines. Make great farewell gifts for an admin who has been in the lab for, say, four years and has just been promoted.

2013 Lab Mug

The 2013 X-lab lab mug comes with a shiny black interior finish.

Great for:

  • Drinking cofee
  • Drinking tea
  • Remembering during a lab meeting what your colleagues are working on (names strategically placed below research topics)

Designed by Kerry Boyle (2013).
