Cup that will not Tip!

Not that I drink from a cup. I even shove coffee in an empty beer bottle... But for those more in touch with their feminine side (if I was I would)



Heres the article, scroll down a bit to see how you can preorder

Re: Cup that will not tip!

Good Grief! Way too fussy for me! The old style broad based commuter mugs really don't tip over.

I'm thinking a monohull cup would be more stable than a catamaran cup.

Re: Cup that will not Tip!

Do the bubbles in a glass of beer last longer with the gentle, though heeled motion of a mono? Or the jiggling of a Cat?

Having experience with beer on both types of boat, it lasts the same amount of time with me...

Re: Cup that will not Tip!

It appears to me that there is an obvious volume deficiency, but given such a cup, I could tip it!

Yes. Our ordinary cups don't tip, no need to buy weird ones.

Re: Cup that will not Tip!

I love the doors in the article. I also love that the grand daughter invented this for her grandfather. I don't need one as drinking from the bottle is good for me :-)
